First-time author and Hawaiian native Kysar understands the fantasy the Hawaiian islands hold for many, and provides an expansive look at the island's cuisineâand its origins in Chinese, Japanese, Portuguese, Filipino, and other food cultures. With beautiful photographs, her well-written narrative goes beyond pupu platters, Spam fried rice, and macadamia nut cream pie to expose readers to the essence of Hawaiian culture, from all the regions of influence to its chronology towards statehood in 1959. She also takes the time to set home chefs up with helpful tips for peeling and knife techniques, pantry ingredients, the produce selection, the anatomy of a plate lunch, and the like. Other native customs are explained within recipes: the love of Spam and Kimchi; hamburgers in loco moco style; the lighter side of ramen, called saimin; and chicken hekka, a local sukiyaki that encourages fridge dumping. For the more complicated of these 85 dishes, like Liliko'I (passion fruit) chiffon pie, step-by-step photographs are included. A list of online or mainland ingredient sources would be useful.
