“Hawai‘i is an important part of America’s culinary scene and, after receiving chef Alwin and Azure’s menu and wine list, we knew they’d be an excellent fit to help us celebrate this country’s cuisine,” says Izabela Wojcik, director of house programming for the James Beard House via @honolulumag#tasteourlovefortheland#2016
“There’s no easy path to becoming a chef. Most young cooks fresh out of culinary school have very ambitious aspirations, which I feel one should never lose. The difficulty is having the skill set and work place maturity to follow through, and that always takes time, and I’m talking years.” — @leeannewong#tasteourlovefortheland#HFWF18

"In Hawaii, we greet friends, loved ones or strangers with Aloha, which means love. Aloha is the key word to the universal spirit of real hospitality, which makes Hawaii renowned as the world's center of understanding and fellowship. Try meeting or leaving people with Aloha. You'll be surprised by their reaction. I believe it and it is my creed. Aloha to you." -- Duke Kahanamoku #TasteOurLoveForTheLand#LetHawaiiHappen#AlohaFriday
“I think organizations that help girls, young girls, think beyond that and start to help change the story about what women can be and who they are, are critically important to gender equality.” -- @denisehayashi1, CEO HFWF and 2018 Girl Scouts of Hawai‘i’s Women of Distinction honoree 📷 @midweekhawaii
