Melville Wine Tasting - Rays on the Bay

In 2016 Rays on the Bay is fortunate to have the infusion of a new chef de cuisine,  Junior Ulep, whose background brings a fresh fusion of flavors to the table.

“I grew up on North Shore Oahu in a mixed Filipino-Hawaiian family, where I learned to incorporate local flavors with fresh seafood and produce,” said Ulep.

I’m excited to be back on the Hawai?i Island and use all the knowledge I’ve gained to bring this fusion to Rays on the Bay.”

This year, Rays on the Bay is focusing on developing tantalizing food and wine experiences with the goal to promote and garner attention around Big Island’s growing culinary environment.  The events are designed to offer a combination of cuisine and education for the enjoyment of kama’aina and visitors alike, showcasing the hardworking local farmers behind the thriving agricultural scene.

The first Melville Wine Tasting Reception and Dinner at Rays on the Bay event of the year took place on February 1 at Sheraton Kona.
