The 5th Annual Garden Island Range & Food Festival Nov. 17 drew foodies from across the island and the country. An all-Kaua`i cast of cattlemen, farmers and chefs presented their locally produced agricultural products and creations to a ravenous crowd. The festival was founded with the intent of bringing local talent together to showcase Kaua`i grown goods as well as stress the importance of developing a more sustainable culinary culture.
