coming soon to alphabet soup!

When the going gets tough, the tough go to Hawai’i!

Had enough of cold temps, snow and ice? Me too!

To warm things up with a little tropical sunshine and multi-ethnic flavor, I’ve invited Arnold Hiura to stop by alphabet soup next week. His new coffee table book, Kau Kau: Cuisine & Culture in the Hawaiian Islands (Watermark Publishing, 2009), has been flying off the shelves back home. He’s been quite busy with booksignings and TV appearances, so I really appreciate his taking the time to answer my questions.

Here’s a book trailer to whet your appetite. Time for teriyaki, spam musubi, Saloon Pilot crackers, mochi, sushi, pork adobo, lomi lomi salmon, and Korean kalbi. So ono!
