The Mill House presents the First Annual Maui Chefs Invitational, a multi-part culinary event. Seven Chefs have been nominated and invited to showcase their artistry and point-of-view; a collaboration in the spirit of creativity and camaraderie. Join us as we embark on a culinary adventure with these highly-acclaimed chefs from various cities and backgrounds. Involved in some of the nation’s most successful and cutting edge restaurants, their innovative menus and approach to ingredients leave a lasting impression.
It’s a weekend to engage your senses and indulge in creative cuisine. A chance to learn from and interact with leading Chefs; a time to celebrate their talents, the bounty of Maui’s land and sea, and enjoy the company of fellow enthusiasts.
Maui has long been part of a surfing tradition in which peers nominate and challenge each other to gather and showcase their talents and bravery. This is the concept of the Invitational. It is an opportunity for those passionate in the culinary field, to show respect for history while pushing the boundaries.
From Instagram to Tumblr, from magazines to restaurant reviews, and from cookbooks to Facebook, these Chefs are part of a mass media dialogue about food and dining culture. Chefs Invitational is a chance to take that dialogue live. This series of events will bring eight influential, contemporary chefs into the same kitchen, affording them the opportunity to inspire each other in person, bounce ideas back and forth, and to engage in a discussion about the present and future culinary scene.
