Description: Founded in 1903 by seven women who were daughters of American Protestant missionaries, the Daughters of Hawaii was one of the first organizations in Hawaii to recognize the importance of historical preservation. Since the early 1900s it has been distinguished for preserving Queen Emma Summer Palace in Honolulu and Hulihee Palace in Kailua-Kona, restoring them with original royal furnishings. The Daughters continue to operate and maintain these palaces as their principal activity.
Many of the ancient artifacts in the palaces are related to food. These include cowrie shell squid lures, carved fish hooks, stone poi pounders, bone and shell knives, wooden serving platters and polished calabashes, and bowls for food and water made from coconut shells.
Royalty lived and entertained in these palaces and visitors may see the collection of exquisite china, glassware, gold and silver flatware, and napery imported from America and Europe.
Today Hawaii is known for its cuisines from many countries but with a definite Hawaiian flavor and appeal. The recipes included herein are a reflection of the culinary history of Hawaii and the anecdotes tell of a bygone era. The Daughters of Hawaii is a nonprofit corporation managed by a volunteer board of trustees. Membership is open to any woman who is descended from a person who lived in Hawaii prior to 1880. A support group, Calabash Cousins, is open to any man or woman who is interested in furthering the purposes of the society.
