Basic Training for Foodies in Hawaii wants travelers to Hawaii to experience more than the usual vacation activities.

This September on Maui at the first annual “Invitation To Foodies” seminar, travelers will be asked to learn food and community sustainability from Hawaiians and kama`aina in Hawaii.  This 3-day culinary and cultural event will explore Hawaii’s farm-to-table movement by focusing on Hawaii’s tropical fruits, vegetables and fish.

Cooking demonstations will instruct attendees on preparing healthy meals with tropical flavors.  There will be food, wine and dessert tastings, panel discussions on farming and farmers’ markets, growing organic home gardens and lectures to help foodies with their culinary skills.  All meals are included.

Building community in paradise will be discussed by three Maui non-profits.
