We had so much fun in Hawaii last week that I wanted to re-create some of the foods of the islands even though weather is cold and snowy here in Portland. I knew I had to make Kalua Pork, because it was my favorite foods from the trip. I also wanted to give making poke a try, and fortunately we have an amazing fish counter at a local Asian grocery store, so I was able to pick up some beautiful sashimi-grade ahi. For dessert, I found a recipe for a light white cake filled with macadamia pastry cream and coated with coconut. A perfect finish for this dinner!
Recipes will be posted soon!
My sister and husband put together some great drinks using POG (Pineapple-Orange-Guava juice), pineapple-orange-banana juice, freshly-squeezed lime juice, and rum. They complemented the menu perfectly!
