Island Poké Cookbook
Recipes Fresh From Hawaiian Shores, From Poke Bowls to Pacific Rim FusionBook - 2018
The Hawaiian people have a laid-back love of life, and Island Poke is a London restaurant committed to sharing this ethos and the authentic flavours from these shores in over 65 recipes. Poke (pronounced Po-Keh) means to `slice' or `dice' in Hawaiian - originally, fishermen would haul their catch, dice/poke it up and eat it then and there. Poke has evolved to become the Hawaiian staple of raw fish served on rice with many condiments and toppings. Author and founder of Island Poke, James became hooked on this delicacy after trying it as a child on the beach in Maui. Fast-forward a couple of decades and, bored of generic lunch offerings in London, James remembered the taste of this honest, fresh, delicious food. Sensing a gap in the market for an authentic approach to Hawaiian cuisine with a healthy sustainable approach, the concept for Island Poke was born. James's aim with this book is to share the joys of one of the most culturally diverse food scenes in the world, with the staple dish of poke being just the beginning - real Hawaiian food is a delicious fusion of many cuisines including Polynesian, Japanese, Chinese, South American, Pacific Rim and even Portuguese influences. Accompanying the recipes are six informative essays on Hawaiian culture."--
