Food and family are mainstays of Hawaiian culture. I was raised to never show up empty handed to a party. You always come bearing your favorite foods. Whether it be a pūpū, main dish, or dessert, you have something in hand to share potluck style.

Pūpū is the Hawaiian word for appetizer. These include traditional Hawaiian foods like Hawaiian style poke, lomi ‘ō’io, and pohole salad. Or local favorites like smoked meat, boiled peanuts, or wontons.
