In Hawaii we celebrate for any reason, birthday, wedding graduation, or for no reason at all. Lû‘au in traditional days could last for days and had strict rules dictating the type of food to be served at each occasion. Today, lû‘au enable family and friends to come together, enjoy good food, music and each other. Sam Choy and The Mâkaha Sons, two names synonymous with lû‘au in Hawaii have come together to create this cookbook and CD combo, a first in Hawaii. From "straight Hawaiian-style Poke" to mouth-watering kalua pig and cabbage, this book has it all to help you plan a successful Hawaiian lû‘au…including the music!
