of the Luau
old Hawaii a luau meant a lavish food extravaganza to
fete royalty, foreign dignitaries, powerful chieftains,
or hundreds of guests at important weddings, christenings
often lasted for days and required an incredible amount
of preparation. Guests sat on mats on the ground, with
food piled high in calabash bowls in front of them.They
ate a bit, danced a bit, drank a little and sang a lot.
A rollicking shared experience . . . a feast of aloha.
the luau is a major visitor attraction and dozens are
held daily throughout the islands. Needless to say,
some preparations have been streamlined, although the
traditional roast pig and other authentic delectables
are still served.
with these dishes on the menu we are ready to set the
scene. If you can't get to Hawaii then organize your
own group at home. Remember . . . a Hawaiian luau is
a fun affair . . . casual, informal, abounding in merriment.
No age barrier here. The crowd is mixed, Island-style.
Here, at Hub-UK
you will find everything you need to have your own Luau!
