A Feast for the Senses

L’ulu celebrates its 10th anniversary this year! We’re thrilled to feature 10 program alumni who have careers in some of Hawai‘i’s top restaurants! These alumni come back to Leeward as proud graduates to support the next generation of industry professionals. Join us at our 10th anniversary “Feast for the Senses” and indulge in the delectable cuisines of Hawai‘i’s finest chefs, the sounds of Sonya Mendez & Chica Tropica, and Noel Okimoto & Dean Taba complimented by an array of beverages from Southern Wines & Spirits, Paradise Beverages, Pepsi, Waialua Coffee, and The Tea Chest. A special trunk show by ProjectRunway finalist Ari South completes the evening.

We also continue to feature the partnerships between chefs and farmers that seek to manage our natural resources and environment in a sustainable manner and shape the local market. Enjoy the mouthwatering contemporary cuisines, meet the chefs and alumni, and talk-story with the farmers who supply the restaurants with fresh nutritious products!
