The Tastes & Tales of Mo‘ili‘ili features more than 200 favorite recipes compiled by the members, volunteers, and friends of the Mo‘ili‘ili Community Community Center. Sprinkled in to add some spice and flavor are stories about this historical O‘ahu neighborhood written by well-known and much-loved storyteller, the late Glen Grant.
Grant’s talk story combined with local-style recipes such as Hideo’s Easy Gyoza, Mrs. Aoki’s Shoyu Chicken, and Mom’s Egg Flower Soup, gives the reader a sense of place and history that preserves the community’s legacy. Sure to be a collector’s item for anyone who counts themselves part of the Mo‘ili‘ili ‘ohana, this cookbook will serve as a reminder of all that is unique and special about this little community.
