Welcome to Season 2, Episode 23! Hawai’i Regional Cuisine is the culmination of over a century of the merging of tradition, fresh ingredients, colonialism, Asian immigrants, and more. It’s developed into what we think is the most unique and diverse regional cuisine in America. We talk about the various impacts on Hawaiian cuisine that influenced HRC over time as well as the current chefs leading the way. We begin the episode with some current events including James Hong receiving a well-deserved star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame! We close out the episode with another segment of What Are We Reading? This episode we talk about the comic book The Mask of Haliya by an amazing new group Kwento Comics and a graphic novel of short comics called The Outside which was led by The Kao.
