This August, Easter Seals Hawaii has partnered with the State of Hawaiʻi Department of Agriculture, Kona Brewing Company and Under My Umbrella to produce the 2nd Annual Traveling Plate Hawaiʻi, a unique ʻtravelingʻ culinary event series stretching across ka pae ʻāina o Hawaiʻi.
Celebrity chef-studded launch events on Kauaʻi, Hawai’i, Maui and Oʻahu, will cultivate new relationships between the talented creative local chefs and farms of Hawaiʻi; while increasing awareness and funds for Easter Seals Hawai’i programs. In addition to these launch events, the Traveling Plate HI joins ranks with over 50 restaurants to continue promotion of locally sourced food. Restaurant Ambassadors statewide will offer a menu item throughout the month of August highlighting a locally sourced ingredient and donating a portion of proceeds from each dish each dish back to Easter Seals Hawaii.
Maui will host the third launch event on Saturday, August 19, in partnership with Sugar Beach Events located in South Maui. #TPMaui, a grazing style evening, will highlight Maui chefs crafting locally sourced eats from Maui’s best farms. Participating Maui chefs include Host Chef Lee Anderson of Sugar Beach Events, Chef Eric Morrissette of Fleetwood’s on Front Street, Chef Bella Toland of Travassa Hāna, visiting celebrity guest Chef Lee Anne Wong of Koko Head Cafe in Honolulu and desserts by B3-A Beach Bunny Bakery.
The community is invited to join in the celebration of the legacy of important work by Easter Seals Hawaii (ESH) and our local culinary food producers throughout the islands by JOINING US for the 2nd Annual Traveling Plate HI 2017 at a launch event, or with a Restaurant Ambassador near you!
