Experience Island Ingredients

Interested in learning more about Maui grown ingredients? Partake in two new complimentary culinary experiences, available at Black Rock Lounge from 5:30 – 6:30 PM on select dates.


A gourmet experience highlighting Hawaiian culture, locally-sourced ingredients and island beverages. Each event highlights one ingredient, with Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa’s Cultural Advisor Jack Stone discussing the history and cultural significance of the ingredient, while Executive Sous Chef Chris Lederer leads a cooking demo, creating a delicious dish with the featured ingredient for tasting. Custom craft beer pairings from Maui Brewing Company will also be presented.


Led by Mark Nigbur, master distiller of Hali‘imaile Distilling Company, who will educate guests on the company’s locally made Pau Maui Vodka, FID Street Gin and Paniolo Whiskey, while a local mixologist mixes craft cocktails to sample. Chef Lederer will create a complimentary pupu menu, with ingredients and flavors that accentuate the cocktail combinations.
