The islands of Hawaii offer some of the most culturally diverse food combinations in the world.
Hawaiian cuisine IS the definition of "fusion" in cooking because so many cultures and styles have contributed to the flavors of Aloha.
Today I'm joining Marta Lane, the founder of Tasting Kauai Food Tours for a deliciously fun day exploring the flavors of the north shore of Kauai.
These flavors are found in our very first stop with the most traditional of Hawaiian foods. Poi is the base for Lomi Lomi Salmon and Kalua pork from the Hanalei Taro and Juice company.
This is the height of sustainable and local farming, as the ingredients for much of the meal came from less than a mile away!
The Trucking Delicious food truck put coconuts to good use as Chloe has whipped up her famous Haupia Cream Pie that didn't last long on the plate.
Our scenic drive over the bridge than brought us to Tiki Iniki's tiki bar and a great time with Michele Rundgren, the owner. Yes, that's Rundgren like Todd Rundgren, the rock star, and Michele is his wife who makes a MEAN Mai Tai!
From rustic pizzas at the Palate Market to freshly baked gluten-free breadfruit pastries, the rest of the tour was a discovery in the exciting and unique ingredients YOU can find in Hawaii.
Join me for my next FREE Webinar Workshop, "The What, How And Why of Hawaiian Fusion Cooking"
and discover how to bring the exciting flavors of Hawaii to your everyday cooking.
