Quisine of hearts brunch benefit – Hilton Waikoloa Village

February 12, 2012                                 

Celebrate Valentine’s Day with your special someone at the 17th annual ‘Q’uisine of Hearts, a lovely brunch that annually benefits 2000 Kona-Kohala keiki through American Culinary Federation (ACF) Chef and Child nutrition awareness programs. Time is 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m.,  at the Hilton Waikoloa Village.  While innovative and mouth-watering desserts are definitely the draw at ÔQÕuisine, the culinary repast whets the sweet tooth with a sprawling bruschetta buffet stocked with breads, meats, cheeses and carefully crafted condiments arranged by West Hawaii community college culinary students. Also on tap are omelet and eggs benedict stations, wine, champagne and ales, plus piping hot coffee and tropical teas. Serenading the scrumptious ‘”eats” will be romantic piano music by Loren Wilken, including some of your favorite love songs. During the silent auction, bid for “sweetheart” floral arrangements and private catered dinners by top Big Isle chefs. Tickets, priced at $45 for adults and $20 for children aged 5-10 are for sale at Gourmet Chef’s Supply, Kailua Candy Company and Kona Wine Market in Kona or at Tropical Dreams Ice Cream in Waimea.
