POSTED:



Hawaii's emerging chefs will be in the spotlight in December when StarChefs.com, an online culinary magazine, brings its Rising Stars Revue to Hawaii for the first time.

The grazing event, scheduled for Dec. 4, will be hosted by the Halekulani and chef Vikram Garg and co-hosted by Chai Chaowasaree. Pairings will come courtesy of the Halekulani's sommelier, Kevin Toyama.

At the gala, the Restaurant of Distinction and Mentor awards will be announced, along with a people's choice favorite dish award.

The event runs from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $95, $125 VIP, available at 212-966-7575 or www.starchefs.com/tickets. A portion of sales will benefit the Culinary Institute of the Pacific.

Each year, StarChefs.com focuses on four U.S. cities to select its Rising Stars.
