Hawaii | Fanta-Sea with The Royal Hawaiian

25735078633_b4be15f89a_cEvery other month, The Royal Hawaiian hosts a dinner series called Fanta-Sea. The concept is pretty neat. Each dinner pairs the resort’s Executive Chef Colin Colin Hazama with a local farmer on Oahu. The next one takes place this Friday (more info here) and is done in partnership with Brooks Takenaka of United Fishing Agency at Pier 38.

Most guests spend the night at the resort…and the next morning, everyone heads to Pier 38 to get a hands-on look at how the ingredients are selected. Then back to the resort for a little refresher…and then lunch! Lunch is made with all the sourced ingredients from the morning visit and takes place inside the King Kamehameha Suite (which I am very excited to see heheh).
