As mentioned in my first recipe blog, Hawaii is a wonderful mix of cultures and each of these peoples brought with them their customs and foods. The early plantation days saw these combining cultures creating foods that are unique only to Hawaii. We thank these early pioneers who planted and nurtured these plantation fields and created many of these amazing recipes. Because we have this rich Hawaiian heritage, I started this running blog that features recipes with a Hawaiian flair.
