Chef Vivian will put a local twist on a Southern favorite from her award-winning book, Deep Run Roots and Chef Ed will be creating the night’s luau theme with kalua pork prepared in a traditional imu, nestled amongst the lush setting of the farm.

Copies of Deep Run Roots are available for pre-purchase when you buy your event ticket, to be picked up and signed by Chef Vivian at the event. Quantities are limited. (Additional copies will be for sale at the event, but pre-purchasing ensures you’ll get one! )

Proceeds from this event go to our Dames who Donate Scholarship Fund:

It is our Hawaii Chapter’s goal to offer scholarships for education and continuing education grants for mentorships, both locally and abroad, to kamaaina female applicants who are pursuing careers in the food, fine beverage and hospitality industries. These awards range between $500 – $5000 and are based on financial need, achievement, experience, and potential for success in the culinary trade. The Mission of “Dames who Donate” is to promote and inspire local women to dream big and become leaders in their chosen field.
