About the ‘Aipono Awards:

Now in their 12th year, the ‘Aipono Awards are the first high-profile restaurant awards devoted entirely to Maui.
They are awards of honor and distinction determined by our readers—the residents and regular visitors of Maui. The prestigious Chef of the Year title is decided by peer review—voted on exclusively by Maui chefs.

The annual ‘Aipono Awards Gala proudly serves Maui's restaurant and hospitality professionals with a celebratory evening they can call their own. Restaurant owners are encouraged to bring their managers, chefs, and staff along to participate in the festivities. The awards presentation is a benefit for the Maui Culinary Academy. Ticket sales generate vital, unencumbered funds for the school, as well as scholarship money for deserving students. Students enjoy the invaluable experience of working alongside sponsor restaurant chefs in preparation for the gala’s dinner.

Throughout the year, Maui No Ka ‘Oi's ‘Aipono Wine Dinner Series generates additional funds by bringing the industry’s top winemakers to ‘Aipono Award-winning restaurants.

Thank you for your support! There are only a few seats left! Please call 808-242-8331, or email kao@mauimagazine.net to secure your spot. 

Join us in celebrating 12 years of culinary excellence on
Maui as voted by the readers of Maui No Ka ‘Oi Magazine.
