A feast for the eye and the palate, this is the ultimate presentation of the new cuisine from Hawaii and the Pacific Rim created by its most celebrated and honored chef, Roy Yamaguchi. He takes the reader on a journey of discovery as he presents some 100 recipes based on the rich variety and freshness of the foods of the islands (and shows how they can be created anywhere). Unique, dazzling color photos complete this portrait of a brilliant new cuisine.
