Morimoto Maui Wins Gold at 2015 ‘Aipono Restaurant Awards
By: Morimoto Maui
Morimoto Maui opened in the fall of 2013 at Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort, offering locally sourced, seasonal ingredients from Hawai‘i in a distinctive culinary style that blends Western and Japanese traditions.
‘Aipono combines the Hawaiian words ‘ai (food) and pono (excellence)
More than 400 restaurant professionals and industry supporters attended the 2015 ‘Aipono Gala — the largest in ‘Aipono history. Each year, the event raises substantial funds for Maui Culinary Academy at the University of Hawai‘i–Maui College, and provides a rare mentoring opportunity for Academy students, who spend the day of the gala working side by side with professional chefs in a real-world restaurant environment.
