ALOHA! This month, our What’s Cooking in America dining series is bringing us to the beautiful islands of Hawaii, as we explore the history, culture, and tastes of a traditional luau.
Did you know that the modern Maui luau is traced back to King Kamehameha II in 1819? Before this, social and religious taboos forbid men and women to eat together, and certain menu items were off limits to non-royals. At his feast, King Kamehameha II symbolically banished these customs by eating with women and commoners. This feast became known as a Luau!
This month you’ll have the opportunity to taste some of King Kamehameha II’s favorite dishes, considered a staple for a luau like: Lomi Lomi Salmon; Sweet Pineapple Luau Chicken Skewers; Salmon Poke; Kalua Pig; and Haupia – a sweet coconut custard dessert. For all these and more, please check:
