HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Local students are learning how to make delicious food using ingredients grown right here at home.

The Sheraton Waikiki hosted cooking workshops and star chefs who faced off to see who could create the best dish using a secret ingredient inspired by Waimea Middle School's culinary gardens.

The event kicks off a three-year pilot program to use local produce in school cafeterias.
