Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea has announced a new culinary experience that gives guests a rare glimpse into Hawaii’s wild side.
‘Fire & Wine’, available exclusively for Four Seasons Maui guests, includes a helicopter ride from the resort to Haiku House, a historical estate nestled on the island’s rugged North Shore. Here, guests will meet Yeshua Goodman, owner and head chef at Kiawe Outdoor and the island’s most accomplished advanced sommelier, and watch as their personalized menu cook over open flames. All of the night’s ingredients will be sourced by Goodman, whether it be diving for octopus, deep-sea fishing, axis deer hunting or simply gathering from one of the island’s many farms.
After an interactive blind wine tasting led by Goodman that will decide wine pairings for the night, guests will enjoy a guided tour of Haiku House, best known for its role in the sugar industry. Then, the main event will be a multi-course meal, which has been cooked over kiawe (mesquite) wood embers for hours and expertly paired with fine wines. Under a canopy of monkeypod trees, Goodman will serve the dinner tableside.
The night will end on a sweet note with a demo and delectable dessert by Four Seasons Maui Executive Pastry Chef Riccardo Menicucci.
“What I love about sharing open-fire cooking with guests is that it brings us back to our source,” says Goodman. “Cooking over a fire is primal; there is a sense of returning to your roots, especially here in Hawaii. I love creating experiences for guests that evoke a sense of belonging, of being home.
