Guide Review - Hawaiian Cookbook by Roana and Gene Schindler
First published in 1970, Roana and Gene Schindler's Hawaiian Cookbook has lost none of its appeal with the passage of time.
The recipes contained in the book are the standard Hawaiian home-style favorites that have too often disappeared in favor of the new Hawaiian Regional or Pacific Rim Cuisine.
You'll find recipes for all of the favorite foods that you find at luaus as well as many of the best recipes of the many ethnic groups that have come to make Hawaii their home.
The recipes are all presented in a very straightforward fashion and easy to follow. The final section of the book entitled "Let's Have a Luau" tells you everything you need to know to host your own luau at home.
