Chef Sam Choy had his first bite of ‘ulu as a child growing up in Lā‘ie, on O‘ahu’s North Shore, in a neighborhood where everyone had a breadfruit tree in their yard.
Sam learned methods of preparing ‘ulu from both family and neighbors who originated from all over the Pacific, bringing to Hawai‘i their cherished traditions. This upbringing permeates his entire professional career.
Sam Choy’s ‘Ulu Cookbook is a rare recipe collection devoted to a truly Hawaiian and Polynesian staple. The recipes are Sam’s own, from friends, and the Hawai‘i ‘Ulu Cooperative, who partnered in creating this book. Galyn Wong, who felt passionately about ‘ulu’s health values, pioneered with Sam the idea of an entire book devoted to what she considered was a wonder food.

Hawai’i is a unique place on earth with awe-inspiring natural beauty ranging from white sand beaches, to plunging waterfalls, to cloud-covered summits. It’s a place where the creation of land continues with fiery volcanic eruptions and streams of lava tat cool, coil, and cement into hardened black rock out of which new life miraculously sprouts through cracks and crevices under the same sun that the demigod Maui slowed with his rope.
