Many tasty local favorites...if only she had pickled mango :-). I make the oyako donburi often as well as furikaki fish (yummy with salmon).

Being away from home and in NYC makes this book priceless for me. No local potlucks, plate lunches, or okazu deli food here, I gotta make my own "ono" food...thank goodness for this book!

Mahalo for sharing Aunty Jean!

These recipes are easy and straightforward. You don't need to be a gourmand to make these. Although often rather low-brow (cream of mushroom soup, powdered onion soup mix...) I found them actually really good and sort of nostalgic in a comfort food sort of way. These are great recipes for feeding a family without a lot of fuss but still with some flair. I'm not from Hawaii but I think sugar is really loved over there! I had to decrease the sugar sometimes to suit my tongue. Every Hawaiian I know has this book so I think it is really representative of what locals eat at home.

There are a lot of fancy tourist oriented Hawaiian cookbooks out there, which are written by chefs and use many expensive and hard to obtain ingredients. This book is not one of them. It has the food which Hawaiians actually eat every day, and that food is good! Hawaiian cooking is true fusion food, a product of the history of the islands and not of some chef's imagination. Hawaiian cooking combines elements of Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Filipino, Polynesian, American, and Portuguese cooking into a pleasing whole. The recipes in this cookbook are simple, straightforward, and delicious. Try the barbecued pork ribs made with orange marmalade. They are incredible.

After receiving this book ordered one for my daughter who is in the military. Great book with simple easy recipes to
follow. I'm a Michigander now and this book brings back a lot of fond memories from back home.

This is a wonderful cookbook. One of my top 5 favorite cookbooks. The ingredients are easy to find at your local Asian grocery store and the meals are quick to prepare for my family. I definitely would recommend this book to those who love Hawaii, Hawaiian cuisine, and appreciate cooking without having to search for difficult to find ingredients and still please the family at the dinner table.

I wanted it for the chicken enchilada recipe. My daughter-in-law gave me this book a few years ago and I lost it. I am so glad I found it at Amazon. I don't eat oxtail soup/stew but I tried the recipe because the picture on the cover looks so good and since then I have people at family gatherings request the dish again.

I found some good recipes for island cooking. Recipes are basic. I will go to this cookbook when I have a craving for home cooking and when I miss home.
