Betty Shimabukuro has been tracking down recipes for the Honolulu Star Bulletin’s “By Request” column since 1998. Possibly the one thing that has been requested more than any particular recipe is a cookbook. Now, readers finally have the answer to that request in By Request; The Search for Hawaii’s Greatest Recipes. This cookbook is filled with the most popular, memorable and favorite recipes uncovered by the column. The book includes recipes for a variety of dishes from robust main dishes to essential sides and luscious desserts and treats of all kinds. There is a special section dedicated to the legendary Top Five recipes of all time – revealing Alice Chicken’s secret to the best spicy Korean wings for instance – and another section of recipes from local celebrity chefs.
