Those who love grass-fed beef and other meats from our islands will want to mark calendars for the upcoming Mealani’s Taste of the Hawaiian Range on the Big Island.

“One of Hawaii's most beloved foodie events is coming up September 30 and Hilton Waikoloa Village will be offering the convenience of room and event packages,” says Cynthia Rankin, a spokesperson for the resort.

“With an annual attendance of more than 2,000, the Mealani’s Taste of the Hawaiian Range and Agricultural Festival is a celebration for true localvores, and Hilton Waikoloa Village is a proud partner for its 16th annual event.”

Hilton Waikoloa’s food and beverage team has invited more than 30 of the state’s top chefs to create meaty dishes using grass-fed-and-finished beef, pork, lamb, goat, mutton and wild boar, plus they’ll kick it up with exotic fresh island fruits and vegetables.

Held in the Hilton Waikoloa’s Grand Ballroom from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 30, 2011, the event will also immerse you in true Hawaiian culture, and offer seminars such as Cooking Grass-Fed Beef 101 at 3 p.m. It will be led by KTA grocery store’s Derek Kurisu, host of TV’s “Living in Paradise.” Cost is $10 per person and includes a takeaway recipe.
