Definitive. A delightful collection of recipes, history, humor and insight.-- "Honolulu Magazine" The best book of its kind available... Read the sections on Spam, shave ice, crack seed and mochi for a delightful insight to the curious treats that comprise true Island cuisine. Never pedantic, always entertaining... the result of careful research yet not intimidating. Here is a book to savor, a book to share with those who love the Islands and its food as much as you do.-- "Honolulu Weekly" Marvelous.... The 150-odd recipes constitute a matching jumble. They are as cheerfully lawless a bunch as I've seen in any cookbook.-- "Los Angeles Times"
