Description: Hawaii is clearly one of the most exotic of all the United States. Located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean hallway between Asia and the U.S. mainland, Hawaii has a colorful history that runs the gamut from Polynesian voyagers to merchant seamen and missionaries, from the Hawaiian monarchy to the creation of a rich, multiracial melting pot and entry into the American federation.
Great Chefs of Hawaii explores the rich culinary traditions of these islands, and makes them accessible to the home cook. Chefs like Sam Choy, Roy Yamaguchi,Amy Ferguson-Ota, Gerard Kaleohano, Onjin Kim, Alan Wong, and forty-two others equally talented and well-known have opened their kitchens and their hearts to share their enthusiasm for Hawaiian tastes. These young chefs are doing exciting and innovative work. Many of these chefs are Hawaiian born.They arc using the seasonings, fruits, vegetables, and fish they grew up with, but in a fresh, new manner.
Hawaiian dishes are derived from a natural bounty which includes a rainbow of fresh fish, coffee, exotic fruit, the United States' only home- grown chocolate, Macadamia nuts, bright purple potatoes and golden pineapples. Dishes like Sashimi Salad, Rock Shrimp with Sprout Slaw and Asian Cocktail Sauce, or Kula Vegetable Torte fit naturally into today's interest in using healthy ingredients. Dishes like Ahi Wellington Kalua, Molokai Sweet Bread Pudding, and Kona Coffee-Chocolate Cheesecake with Macadamia Nut Crust prove that wc all love a treat.
The recipes in this book have been tested for the home cook. While many of the ingredients are regional and require some hunting, most recipes can be simplified and produced anywhere. Substitutions for island ingredients have been given wherever possible.

The book is lavishly illustrated, and includes guidelines for pairing wines with Hawaiian dishes. Great Chefs of Hawaii is a passport to the wonderfully fresh flavors of this island paradise.
