Island Time

Eat like a local at the Hawai'i Food and Wine Festival

Get familiar with the term "ono."

It's the word Hawaiian locals attribute to all things delicious.

And it's the word you'll hear over and over again at the fourth annual Hawai'i Food and Wine Festival, going down September 4 through September 7.

Get your tickets here.

Say aloha to legends like Hubert Keller and Alan Wong while rubbing elbows with the island's rising stars, like Vintage Cave's Chris Kajioka. Plus, more than 80 renowned chefs and culinary personalities will be dishing out eats and drinks during this food- and booze-filled extravaganza.

So many delicious bites, so little time–but you've got the Tasting Table-approved itinerary right here:

Belly up to A Lucky Modern Budda Belly, where you can sample bites from Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto and 13 other renowned chefs.

Say cheers at Corks & Forks, where you can sip on Napa Valley wines and feast on snacks from famed chefs like Sydney's Tetsuya Wakuda.

End your last night with a bang (read: fireworks at the beach!) at It's a Food World After All, where you'll snack on dishes from James Beard award-winner Naomi Pomeroy and more.

This is the real taste of Hawai'i; everything is made with locally sourced ingredients from the islands' fishermen and farmers. There's more to O'ahu than the beaches–the island is your year-round ticket to all-ono access with its sprawling farmers' markets and vibrant restaurant scene.

Better snag your tickets now. Ono o'clock approaches.
