Jake Belmonte, University of Hawai’i Maui College’s Culinary Arts Program Chef Instructor, along with student Marion Sidon will be featured on KHON2’s “Living808” on Wednesday, July 19, at approximately 8:25 a.m.

The daily lifestyle show airs weekdays from 8 to 9 a.m. and is hosted by television personalities Trini Kaopuiki and John Veneri.


Chef Belmonte graduated from the program in 1997 and, after working at some of Maui’s best resorts, came back to teach in 2009. Sidon became interested in the program after winning an “Into the Fire!” culinary competition for high school students.


In the segment, Belmonte and Sidon will talk to Trini about their own experiences at UHMC’s excellent culinary arts program.
