Sunday Brunch: A Day of Good Food and a Selfie With Adam Richman

Revisiting the Hawaii Food and Wine Festival, a premier event on Oahu

If you live or do business on Oahu, then it is more than likely your Twitter, Facebook and Instagram feeds were infiltrated this past week and a half by food and celebrity chef posts courtesy of the annual Hawaii Food & Wine Festival and its thousands of attendees. Thanks to a last-minute media pass, I too got my fair share of food pictures and celebrity sightings, all from a two-hour event on a rooftop restaurant in Waikiki—the Battle of the Brunch Throwdown. 

Six chefs from Hawaii and beyond were paired up to form a team and bring their brunch A-game. All of the guests, after being stuffed to the brim with poached eggs, bacon jams, French toast and Bloody Marys, were encouraged to vote for their favorite pair. So you can feel like you were there, and possibly cast your own vote (on our Facebook page), here is a recap of the contenders, along with other eye candy.
