If you're even considering this cookbook, you're most likely already familiar with such Hawaiian local staples as SPAM musubi and saimin with SPAM. Which means you're also most likely a fan of SPAM.

Which means you would like this book anyway, as goofy a concept as it might seem on the surface. But let me tell you this, on top of that:

Despite the rather unorthodox main ingredient which this cookbook offers up, the PHOTOGRAPHY is about the best out of any cookbook I own. Even if you hate SPAM or would never even think about cooking anything in here, it's fun to just flip through the pages to look at the whimsical presentations they've come up with. Endless fun.

And if you like SPAM, the recipes are actually very, very good.

I bought the cookbook in Hawaii when we visited there for our 25th anniversary. It was fun to see all the kinds of Spam available in the islands and the cookbooks that highlight Spam. I loaned it out and couldn't remember to whom. So I replaced it with this one. I enjoy it and there are several dishes we enjoy eating.

Either you love SPAM or you don't. I do. Fun recipes, fun layout, easy to follow instructions. If you can't bring yourself to ingest that much sodium just eat it with your eyes closed followed by lots of water. Gift to SPAM lovers with a basket full of musubi ingredients and a sushi rice mold, a big hit.

This is one of the best SPAM cookbooks I've ever seen. Lots of beautiful pictures, suggestions on how to use SPAM. Honestly, I am not a huge SPAM fan, but my husband and Mom are. So I am trying. The cookbook has a spiral back and flaps that you can use to save your place in the cookbook. There are some silly "helpful" cooking hints along the way, but that doesn't detract from the recipes and beautiful pictures!

I grew up eating spam and love it. I lived in Hawaii for over ten years and guarantee that spam is way more popular on the islands than it is here on the main land.

If you love spam, and also love Asian foods, this book is for you.

Great color photos, spiral bound for easy use and great recipes for the spam lover.

Gave this as a gift to my newly independent 20 yo son as he thinks Spam is part of the basic food groups here in Hawaii. He has made a bunch of recipes and they have turned out well I've heard (I haven't jumped on the Spam-wagon yet....) so if my son, whom I wouldn't trust using a toaster alone in my house, can make these recipes then anyone can...

Great book with many good pictures, illustrations, facts and recipes. It reminds me of the many different spam dishes I had at different restaurants while stationed in Hawaii. Hawaiians love spam. Enjoyable book.

I purchased this book for my husband's 40th anniversary present. He is going to love it. We lived in the islands for 6 years and fell in love with spam again after having it alot in our childhood. The book is really well written and the recipes easy. Thank you for such a great boook.
