University of Hawaii Maui College Culinary Arts Program Chef Instructor Jake Belmonte and his student Marion Sidon will appear on “Living808” on Wednesday at approximately 8:25 a.m.

The daily lifestyle show, which airs on KHON2 weekdays from 8 to 9 a.m., is hosted by popular TV personalities Trini Kaopuiki and John Veneri.

Belmonte graduated from the culinary program in 1997, and after working at some of Maui’s best resorts, came back to teach in 2009.

Sidon became interested in the program after winning an “Into the Fire!” culinary competition for high school students. Sidon and Belmonte will talk to Kaopuiki about their experiences.
