Hawaiian life is relaxed and entertaining tends to reflect a casual life style, where pupu-and-drinks parties are common. Besides the usual sections found in a cookbook of this kind, there is one called "Da Kine," a catch-all phrase used for miscellaneous items. In this case, "Da Kine" reflects recipes considered "local," representing some of the ethnic groups of the islands. Trying these special pupus may bring back wonderful memories of "Paradise!"
