Hawaii Cooks Throughout the Year
Maili Yardley, long time food columnist in The Honolulu Advertiser, author of 3 best-selling cook books and three historical books on Hawai‘i, is a true daughter of the Islands. Born and raised on O‘ahu, she loves to share and has written Hawaii Cooks Throughout The Year for kamaʻaina, malihini, and neophytes in the kitchen to help plan menus for all occasions with simple and basic recipes.
This volume is more than a cook book, it is literally a calendar of cooking. It tells when popular Island fruit are in season with a brief description and recipes. You’ll find suggested menus for summer picnics and long weekends, tea and cocktails and holiday feasts in the appropriate months.
Maili’s innate love of Hawai‘i, past and present, shines throughout the book in bits of Hawaiian lore and history and tips for preparing an authentic poi supper locally and a Hawaiian lūʻau on the mainland.The beautiful paintings that head each chapter and the cover were done by her husband, Paul T. Yardley, whose works of art hang in homes locally and on the mainland.
