‘Q’uisine of Hearts benefits keiki nutrition awareness (Feb. 10)


Celebrate Valentine’s Day with your special someone at the 18th annual ‘Q’uisine of Hearts, a satisfying 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., Sunday, Feb. 10 at the Hilton Waikoloa Village.

Enjoy a tantalizing bruschetta buffet, plus omelet and eggs benedict stations, offered by West Hawaii community college students.

Attendees will be tempted with bite-sized pastry specialties by local pastry chefs, bakers, chocolatiers, ice cream and gelato makers.

Also on tap is 100 percent Kona coffee, handcrafted ales, champagne and wine.

Serenading the scrumptious “eats” will be romantic piano music, including some of your favorite love songs. During the silent auction, bid for “sweetheart” floral arrangements, private catered dinners by top Big Isle chefs and tempting cookies and cakes prepared by culinary students.

Tickets, priced at $45 for adults and $20 for children aged 5 and up, available at Kailua Candy Company and Kona Wine Market in Kona or at Tropical Dreams Ice Cream in Waimea. New this year, save by purchasing tickets online at Tickets can also be charged by phone at 329-2522.

‘Q’uisine of Hearts, sponsored by the ACF Kona Kohala Chefs Association, has a Chef and Child Foundation focus. The CCF team in Kona provides nutrition education to children and families.
