We all remember the Junior League cookbooks with their sumptuous recipes covering the gamut of island cooking. Over 200,000 copies were sold during a twenty-year period beginning in the 1980s through the first decade of the twenty-first century. Almost every household in Hawai‘i had at least one cookbook.
Now by popular demand, here are the best and favorite dishes sure to please every palate—from everyday recipes to special occasion dinners, from snacks to delicious desserts.
Over 250 recipes to enjoy and cook for your family or guests. The wows will be forthcoming. There are traditional island favorites—lumpia, spring rolls, chicken wings; salads including spinach, Caesar, and papaya; soups like miso, oxtail, and Portuguese bean; entrées range from kalbi, ribs, to lemon chicken and mahimahi. Of course, there’s lu‘au food and an array of desserts featuring island fruits.
The recipes were selected according to ease of preparation and what is still popular today. If your original book is tattered or long-ago has been misplaced, now you can have an almost like original replacement.
