It's my inaugural post and I thought I'd start with something we consider a priority here in Hawai'i... food!
Food is an important part of our cultural identity here in the islands--the only place you'll find such unique multi-ethnic concotions as Spam Musubi and Poi Mochi. Ohana is also important and we express our love for each other through food and celebration. Holiday dinners usually include sushi, poke and lumpia in addition to the traditional western fare because we just gotta have variety! And since everyone brings something, even if you tell them 'no need', you inevitably wind up with an ecclectic mish-mash of yummy things.

Hawai'i's Party Food by Muriel Miura is the perfect book for anyone wishing to jazz up some of our local favorites. Read more....
