By Staff | May 21, 2015

The event includes a five-course dinner at Black Rock Kitchen on Friday evening, and a private tour to a local farm to see how it operates on Saturday morning.

KAANAPALI – The Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa, Fresh Island Herbs, and Maui Wines have partnered together for the second Black Rock Dinner and Farm Series on May 22-23.

The two-day culinary event begins with a farm-inspired, wine paired, five-course dinner at the oceanfront resort’s Black Rock Kitchen.

Led by Executive Chef Greg Gaspar, guests enjoy tasting and learning about Maui grown ingredients in gourmet dishes along with hand-selected wine pairings.

The winemaker and farmer join the chef to engage in a talk story session with the dinner guests.

The following morning, guests may join a private tour to a local farm to see how the farm operates. The farm tour continues with a cooking demonstration and gourmet lunch in the field.

“The ability to meet the chef and the farmer at the same time with some incredible dishes and talk story while breaking bread is as authentic as it gets when we talk about being ‘local’ and having a ‘local’ experience,” explained Brian Hunnings, executive assistant manager of the Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa.

The Black Rock Dinner and Farm Series event follows a very successful launch in December with a Dragonfruit -inspired dinner and visit to the Maui Dragonfruit Farm. The series continues Oct. 23 and 24 with Lona Ridge Honey Farm.

Tickets are on sale now for $150 per person (inclusive of dinner and farm tour) when purchased by calling (808) 921-4600. For more information, visit www.sheraton-maui.com.
