This is definitely a worth-while book to get even if all you are interested in an education rather than wanting to plan one. I was simply amazed on the sheer amount of food present. This only confirms my hypothesis that there is definitely a connection between the ancient Polynesians and the Alaskan Natives with their own potlatches. I wanna do a luau on the beach this coming summer!!!!! I need to speak to the 4H kids and see if any of them would like to raise their next hog for me. Man!! Each your heart out, Michel Ruhlman!! You'd wish you made it up here to the Kenai Peninsula next year!!
First of all I love Sam Choy, and this book is fabulous if you are doing you own luau. He has all the classic recipies, and they turn out great. Not to mention the cd that's included is true, fun, classic Hawaiian music and gets you in the luau mood! There is also lots of "talking story" that you will love. I would definately suggest investing in this book, you will love it.
Outstanding photos and clear instructions - my ideal of a perfect cookbook. Met Sam Choy @ a fundraiser luncheon which he was the Master Chef. The food and preparation was just like in his cookbook. "ONO"-licious!!!
I bought this book to help me design a luau in Eugene, Oregon. Sam Choy (who seems to think he's famous, but I never heard of him or his fun singers) tells you how to dig a pit and cook a pig in it, complete with hot, sweaty photographs. These convinced my husband that he didn't want to dig a hole in the garden and get all hot and bothered with an insurance liability on his birthday.Sam's recipes were intriguing and fun to read and surprisingly like Minnesota meets Hawaii. I wasn't expecting my grandmother's potato salad recipe!The idea of using liquid smoke to simulate Kahlua Pig made my skin crawl, so I found another recipe for honey-ginger-garlic glazed pork roast with glazed fresh pineapple in an old "Gourmet," which struck me as more my idea of Hawaiian (but what do I know?).Ultimately, I didn't use any of these recipes, but I found the book inspirational with lots of ideas that got my thinking about how to bring Hawaii to the Great Northwest started.The music CD included added lively rhythms to our successful luau for thirty.
