Captivate your palate through an exclusive Epicurean Journey crafted by the Royal Chefs.
The series’ first installment, ROOTS & VINES is inspired by each Chef’s cultural traditions passed down through generations that became the foundation of the multi-ethnic regional cuisine that is widely celebrated today.
ROOTS & VINES - 2-DAY CULINARY EXPERIENCE
Friday, March 31 & Saturday, April 1
The Journey begins with a sunset cocktail reception including wine and amuse-bouche on the upper deck of Azure. Then, Executive Chef Colin Hazama along with Chef Shaymus Alwin and Chef Chris Kirksey will present an array of dinner courses showcasing local, indigenous ingredients such as the Hawaiian staple taro and the moi fish, once only allowed to be enjoyed by alii (royalty). Certified sommelier Micah Suderman will pair new world wines and spirits to complement.
Sweet delicacies by Executive Pastry Chef Carolyn Portuondo will round out the evening.
Continue the experience with an engaging hands-on cooking class and luncheon with The Royal’s culinary team. Whip up local dishes while guided by the Chefs and learn the secrets of the kitchen to surprise friends and family back home.
A special guest speaker will also be sharing his or her own personal knowledge and expertise, from fishing to farming. Then enjoy the fruits of your labor with a grand Hukilau-style lunch to complete your adventure.
