Old foods, new ways at culinary event
The University of Hawaii Maui College's Culinary Academy will host an event that takes a "modern spin" on traditional food favorites from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday at the Leis Family Class Act Restaurant in the Pa'ina Building.
The event, called "Outings," will feature unique takes on food, which could include a compressed fruit salad, which has been through a vacuum chamber. The result is a smoother fruit and one with more flavor, a news release said.
The event is a way for students to showcase their talents and for instructors to gage student knowledge.
Tickets are $40 per person and must be prepaid. There will be a cash bar. For more information and reservations, call 984-3367.
