Hawaiian Hut Heritage
My father, John Kapapa Jr., grew up with his "Tutu" (grandmother) in Kahana Valley, O'ahu, which "may be as close to old Hawaii as you can get…Kahana, with its shallow, horseshoe-shaped bay, is one of the old Hawaiian ahupua'a, a self-sufficient division of land that runs from the mountains to the sea." [Ryan, T. 1987 "Kahana Valley, paradox in time", Honolulu Star Bulletin, 7 April.]
Kahana Valley is a special place to my father, where "shaded from the frenzied forces of modern society…they pass the days with quiet contentment in the tradition of their Hawaiian forebears, making nets, weaving, fishing, farming, and 'talking story.' Like the clear streams and giant shrimp, the fragrant gingers and mountain apples, the people are part of the valley's rich and beautiful resources." [Alton, H. 1979, "Portrait of Kahana", Star Bulletin & Advertiser, 20 May, p. C-1.]
As taught by his Tutu, there, in good "old Hawaii," my father mastered the traditional ways of Hawaiian cooking. Tutu has long since passed on, but the traditional cooking styles have remained a part of my father, and our family heritage. Featuring our family's traditional recipes and local island flavors with a contemporary spin - My wife and I are pleased to bring authentic Hawaii to you!
