Cooking Hawaiian Style the TV show and website documents and preserves a vital part of island culture: its food. Anyone who lives in the islands knows that food both making it and sharing it is at the top of everyone s list of favorable activities. And when we talk food in Hawaii, we are also talking ohana as it is with ohana that food is enjoyed from baby luau, graduations, and other celebrations, to potlucks, barbecues, dining out, and family get togethers. Many of Hawaii s best recipes are passed down from generation to generation. Frank and Lanai s Cooking Hawaiian Style television show invites well-known celebrities and chefs to share their favorite dishes by preparing the recipes while the cameras are rolling. Inevitably, the recipes turn out to be a family favorite or the professional chef talks about how a family member influenced his or her cooking. Usually the recipes come with stories and notes to ignite fond island and ohana memories. So enjoy this second collection of ohana dishes such as Venison Chili and Coconut Shrimp along with old stand bys like Pork Guisantes and Guava Chicken, or variations on a theme like the Furikake Chicharron Chicken Katsu, Mini Korean-Style Kimbap Spam Musubi and Poi Malasada French Toast

I am now posting a new video just about every week. You can watch season 1 of Cooking Hawaiian Style via the internet and on any mobile device, phone or tablet. This weeks episode features Wally Amos also known as "Famous Amos". Wally joined us on the set of Cooking Hawaiian Style to show us how to make the perfect chocolate chip macadamia nut cookies! It was really a treat to get to meet this man that I have been watching on TV all of my life. He is one of the nicest guys you will ever meet!
Get Wally's recipe for the perfect macadamia nut cookie at the link below:
I was in the kitchen trying to create a kulolo style fruit leather. When I pulled my first batch out of the oven, they didn't quite seem right. So I let them sit on the stove top to cool... came back and they were super crispy like brittle. I tasted them and it took on the form of a super crispy hard candy that tasted similar to kulolo with hints of honey, sugar, poi and coconut milk. I loved them! So I made another batch, but sprinkled ground macadamia nuts and ground coconut and they were amazing. I want to make my next batch by dipping them in chocolate and then rolling in mac nuts etc... the options are endless. The main ingredient in this is Taro Brand poi. I am so excited to share this recipe with all of you! Give them a try and let me know what you think?

I love to experiment and today was one of those days that I felt like creating something... Who knew that Taro Brand's new line of pancake mixes would turn out to be a great base to make your cookie creations a reality? Today I tried Taro Brand's new Taro Macadamia Nut Pancake Mix to make these Taro Pumpkin Spice Macadamia Nut Cookies and they came out really good! They are soft on the inside, with that warm comforting pumpkin spice and macadamia nuts in every bite. The exterior has a nice crispy crunch to them with a sprinkle of sugar and spice that really tops this cookie off. If you are looking for a fun, easy Halloween or holiday cookie, try this recipe:

Enthusiasm for local recipes never wanes, and Mutual Publishing continues to feed home cooks’ interest with two n ew releases.
The first, a joint project with the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, is “Cooking Hawaiian Style Two: ‘Ohana Recipes From Lanai & Friends” ($17.95), by Lanai Tabura and Frank Abraham, host/producer and executive producer/owner, respectively, of a cooking show of the same name that airs internationally. “Cooking Hawaiian Style” began as a website Abraham launched several years ago to circulate local recipes among Hawaii ex-pats.
This new collection of 100 recipes features more of the site’s ever-growing recipe archive, much of which is supplied by a who’s who of Hawaii celebrities and food companies. Comedian Frank De Lima’s malasadas, Sun Noodles’ homemade saimin soup and musician Henry Kapono’s Moon Over Opaka opakapaka dish are among the offerings.
The book is organized into categories of simple dishes, plate lunch recipes, soups, healthful recipes, dishes with a twist, desserts and chef offerings.
Abraham said Season 5 of the show, which will begin airing Nov. 2 on OC16, was filmed on Lanai, childhood home of Tabura and a picturesque setting that he hopes will draw more interest in the show. It now airs nationwide on the Lifestyle Network and in Australia, New Zealand, the United Arab Emirates and parts of Europe.
Among the guests are musicians Kelly Boy and Leolani De Lima, MW Restaurant chefs Michelle and Wade Ueoka, watercress farmer David Sumida and world surfing champ Makua Rothman.

I have been tapping into my creative side in the last couple of months and one of the things that I love to do is create recipes. I love coming up with new ideas and developing new recipes with new twists! One of the companies that I work with is Taro Brand - an iconic Hawaii company that most of us in Hawaii have grown up with and have eaten their products all of our lives.
Here is my latest creation - Poi Pumpkin Crunch. This is a re-creation of a popular holiday dish that we always server for Thanksgiving. My goal for this dish was to see how I could incorporate poi into the filling an to see if I could use Taro Brand's Taro Pancake mix for the cookie crust... I was really pleased with the results and wanted to share this local-style version of this recipe, created just for you!

Episode 101 - Daniel Anthony
Watch our very first episode of our Cooking Hawaiian Style TV series featuring Daniel Anthony, a taro activist and a skilled artisan of pa'i'ai which is hand-pounded taro root similar to poi, but made with very little water which enables it to last indefinitely. Daniel makes pa'i'ai, a koena meatloaf and a pa'i'ai instant kulolo dessert. New episodes of Cooking Hawaiian Style are uploaded to our site every week!

I can't believe that we are already 5 seasons into filming Cooking Hawaiian Style with a total of 59 episodes. This particular filming was very special as we were finally able to film outdoors on the beautiful island of Lanai at the Four Seasons Resort Lanai.
The first of these episodes begins airing on November 2nd on OC16 in Hawaii and can be watched on demand on OC16.tv.
I wanted to start this blog to share some of my ideas, passions and to provide you with a behind-the-scenes-look at how both the cooking show and the recipes from the website are created and some of the creative processes that are involved with putting all of this together and bringing it to life. I would love and encourage any ideas, feedback and support that you might have - after all, all of this was created for you!
