Hawaii’s food today is a confusing mixture, a tapestry of the foods of a dozen different ethnic groups. Rather than submitting to a single style, island cooks have incorporated many European dishes, along with those from the Chinese, Japanese and Korean sources; developing a culinary tradition that may be the most festive in the world! The traditional Hawaiian feast is the ultimate of American picnics, cookouts and barbeques. It has added much to the variety of outdoor feasting on the American mainland, especially in California.

This 2nd edition contains Traditional Hawaiian and "make at home" Luau recipes.
