For eighteen years, The Noble Chef, hosted by UH Maui College, has attracted thousands of food lovers who lend support to Maui Culinary Academy’s (MCA) student scholarships, endowments, and programs. Raising funds is only one aspect of this highly anticipated food and wine event. It also serves as a training opportunity for Maui’s burgeoning chefs and is a showcase for the culinary talents of MCA’s industry partners, faculty and students.
This year, the students and chefs embraced the “good life”, the “sweet life”, La Dolce Vita, of Italy, with cuisines selected from Umbria, Abruzzo, Tuscany, Sicily, Calabria, Veneto, Piedmont, Lombardy, Puglia, Lazio, and Sardinia.
