In a recent trip to Hawaii, my husband and I enjoyed a wonderful evening of Hawaiian culture and history by attending a Hawaiian Luau in Maui. When we arrived, we were greeted with the traditional lei of beautiful flowers and the traditional drink, a MaiTai. However, this luau was different than most luaus. With the traditional hula dancing, beating of drums, Hawaiian music, and a wonderful fest of food and drink, this particular luau also had the ceremony of unearthing a Kalua pig. The pig is cooked underground in an imu and after a day of cooking, the pig is ready to be carved and eaten. Along with the roasted pig, the meal consisted of many Hawaiian foods such as baked mahi mahi, pulehu steak, chicken long rice, guava glazed chicken, stir fry vegetables, fried rice, sweet potatoes and more. The salad bar included lomi lomi salmon, taro salad, pahole salad, island crab salad, poke, poi, fresh green salad, fresh island fruits. We were happy to have gone to this luau. It was an evening where we could immerse ourselves into the Hawaiian culture.
