Isle chefs collaborate on book
The first edition was called "Thirty Three Chefs," so the natural follow-up would be -- "Thirty Four Chefs," of course.
The cookbook incorporates recipes from chefs that participate in the Dolphin Days festival, held annually at the Hilton Waikoloa Village. Proceeds benefit the Dolphin Days charities: the Pacific Marine Life Foundation and Hawaii Shriners Hospital for Children.
"Thirty Three" was released in 2003 to mark the 10th anniversary of Dolphin Days. "Thirty Four" highlights Big Island products, from aquaculture to agriculture.
The cookbook sells for $34 plus tax. Order it online at www.hiltonwaikoloavillage.com or www.kohalaspa.com.
