During his tenure with Hyatt, he’s gotten to know some really good meeting planners, he says, and it’s his honor to bring locally grown fruits, vegetables and meats to their guests. “If it’s grown in Maui or in the state, I would love to see all of us [chefs] using that product as much as possible,” says Grohowski, who works with local Ulupalakua Ranch and Ka’anapali Fresh, among others.

To celebrate the opening of the Hyatt’s expanded meeting facilities, including a renovated ballroom, in late 2016, Grohowski put together a six-course, locally sourced dinner with wine pairings for a select group of media. “It’s really exciting for me to get to know the farmers and use their products on our menus,” he says.
