| Some sharing on the event:
It takes a committed group effort to make Noble Chef a success each year. It is through a dedicated coalition of community leaders, culinary industry professionals, and most importantly, the reassuring “good will” extended to our culinary program by each of our Noble Chef guests, that we continue to rally together to turn dreams into reality for our Academy’s aspiring student chefs. Community involvement in our culinary students attainment of higher education and career success is the true essence and value of the Noble Chef.

The Noble Chef not only gives culinary students a glimpse into the industry that they are going to be entering after graduation, but you’re given the opportunity to interact with important people from our island community as well as some of the most talented and inspired Chefs in Hawaii. The Noble Chef is a fast paced, exciting opportunity for any industry hopeful, and gives students a taste of what is like in this hustle and bustle industry.
