Inspired Cuisine: Hawaii Rooted

In Hawaii, there is a belief that food not only feeds the body but also the connection between people and the land.

Whether it’s the fresh, locally grown fruit flavors of shave ice or the freshest catch from spearfishing on the coast, these local chefs have a passion for food that can be tasted in each dish and every bite.

Hawaii cuisine promotes a mindfulness about what’s being served. There is a story behind what is on your plate, and it all starts with the land. The warm sun, pacific winds, and rich soil all come together to create the ingredients in these delicious meals, and locals believe there is a kuleana (responsibility) to take only what you need and serve it with respect.

From early breakfast to dinner and drinks, you’ll be able to experience the intention and appreciation behind all the flavors Hawaii has to offer.
