What is Best Bowl?

For Tasters! Keep your calendar clear for this day! All Faculty and Staff of UH-Hilo and Hawaii Community College are invited to come and sample all the delicious food prepared by your peers. FREE!!! Tasters will vote for their favorite dish to determine the "Best Bowl" on campus.

Free Prizes! All attendees (Tasters and Cooks) will receive a punch card that will allow 5 free visits to the Student Life Center.

Social Event! Talk story with your colleagues, eat great food and make new connections across the campus. It is also a great opportunity to meet new professionals and welcome them to the university.

For Cooks! All UH Hilo/HawCC Faculty and Staff are invited to participate in the Sixth Annual “Best Bowl” Cook-Off.  

What is a Best Bowl Dish? Chili, Soup, Stew, Curry Dish, and more. It just has to be cooked in a pot and served in a bowl. We will leave that up to you. So get your ‘ono recipes ready!

Entries will be divided and judged in categories. Winners will be recognized in each category and an overall Grand Champion will be named “Best Bowl 2014”.

Prizes! The winner of the Best Bowl will receive:

  • First Place - One year membership to the Student Life Center.
  • Second Place- 6 month membership.
  • Best Bowl Award (for display in office). Category winners will also receive a recognition award.
  • Photo on the Best Bowl Hall of Champions web page.
  • The admiration of your peers.
