I am dying to go to Hawaii. The NPR program The Splendid Table had an entire episode on Hawaiian food (not SPAM). This was one of the finest hours of food radio ever. Here is where you go.
Look for the February 17 episode: Honolulu and Oahu, Hawaii
Included are: an interview with Alan Wong (well known chef) discussion with farmer Dean Okimoto, a visit the Honolulu Fish Auction, a tour of Chinatown with Joan Namkoong, author of Food Lover’s Guide to Honolulu.
And, the show makes a too brief mention about one of my culinary quests – to have a shaved ice with ice cream and beans at Matsumoto’s Shave Ice on the North Shore (here is the link about this island institution).
And now…. more!
I am passionate about food and I love history – here are my two favorite sources on the history of food.
Linda Stradley compiles the history and legends of many favorite foods here – this is a companion to her book, I’ll Have What They’re Having – Legendary Local Cuisine.
Lynn Olver, librarian extraordinaire, provides an incredible resource on when various foods appeared in the world.
Local Food Blogs – because I can’t eat everything
These local food blogs are worth your investment of time – read them often and support your local food bloggers.
