Found this book from Better Homes and Gardens last week at goodwill for a buck. Cool pics and recipes from Trader Vic's, Kona Inn,& Coco Palms.It's from 1964. I wish I knew how to download the pages but recipes from Baked Bananas, Island Spareribs, Luau Punch, Kona chicken in a coconut, Double fruit glazed pork chops, Papaya Kahemhameha, Coconut hot cakes with Kauaiian sausage, and many more. It only had a 2-3 page spread on each due to it had many other recipes from other places. Man I'm hungry all of a sudden.

P.S. Anyone ever thought of sharing recipes here or someone starting a cookbook and selling it. I know I would love to try any cool recipes anyone's willing to share here for luau parties and such.

I also collect vintage cookbooks, and have a lot of "Hawaiian" or "Polynesian" recipes, if you want to share... of course typing them all out would be an epic task, but if anyone has any requests for a certain type of dish I will look it up and post it.

Now, these two dishes sound good. Is the chicken actually in the coconut?

Download them from where? I'd like to check them out if they are available on-line. Or do you mean upload them to somewhere? Are you looking for a place to make them available? What fruit is called for in the pork chop glaze?

Well, happy cooking!

Just let me know anything you want to know how to make...I worked in restaurants in Maui for years and even owned my own catering business there. I'd be glad to help out! Grey

I have this insane cookbook published by Campbell's, called "Great Restaurants" that tells you how to recreate the best dishes of famous restaurants.. using Campbell's SOup!

There's some recipes from the Kon-Tiki and Trader Vic's... Thankfully not using cream of mushroom, just cans of Campbells chicken broth.

Another great book I have is "YOU CAN GIVE HAWAIIAN PARTIES". Pineapple upside-down ham loaf, anyone?

In 1967, Jo Byars (wife of Trader Franks) wrote and illustrated a 33-page cookbook called Trader Frank's Exotic Menu Recipes. It's loaded with recipes for simple 'Polynesian-style' food; stuff that would make fun, funky, and inexpensive party dishes. When you factor in Jo's artwork (tikis, wahines, flowers, etc.), it's a must-have tiki classic. Recipes include Steak Teriyaki, Shrimp Tempura, and two of my favorites: the Tiki Sandwhich (a regular ham sandwhich!), and the Fire Dog (a hot-dog sliced on one side and then cooked so that it curls into a circle; serve on a hamburger bun). Check it out on our website; we still have a few new-old-stock cookbooks for sale.

2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened pineapple juice

12 whole coriander seeds, crushed

Brown chops in skillet; season with salt and pepper, then place in shallow baking pan. Combine remaining ingredients for sauce, and spoon about 3 tablespoons over each chop. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 1 1/4 hours or till done, basting now and then with rest of sauce. With toothpick, peg a slice each of orange, lemon, and lime on every chop, top with maraschino cherry; baste fruit with sauce and bake 10 minutes longer.

Thought you'd all enjoy this one from my collection. It's dated 1965 & the back cover says, "An exclusive pre-release printing of the pacifica house Hawaii cook book for Richfield Oil Corporation".



Did Grandpa pick this one up at the local ARCO? (Found in his stuff when he died a few years back...)



Hostess teaching the correct way to eat Poi....



Hostess from The Reef Hotel, Waikiki Beach - many of the pics in this book are from other vintage locations, like The Tahitian Lanai & Fisherman's Wharf Restaurant, Honolulu - but few of the pics really show much of the location - mainly just the food!



Mmmmmmmm.... Pineapple Mint Iced Tea.....



Tiki-Chef!

Hey, thanks for the recipes divychick!

I've already made the Kona Chicken in a Coconut. I didn't have a pastry tube so I used a freezer bag and made a mess but the dish was quite tasty. I plan to try the pork chop dish this weekend.

Thanks again!

Glad you could use the recipes. I would have done the freezer bag also! Here's another simple and different recipe from the Bahama Mama's cookbook.

Fresh Coconut Chips:
coconut
melted butter, or margarine
salt to taste

Crack coconut and remove meat. Slice coconut meat into thin chips and toss lightly with melted butter. Place on baking sheet and broil until golden brown. Sprinkle lightly with salt and serve warm.

My friend Yasa grew up on these in Hawaii and loves them. I can only do so much coconut. But I have tossed them in with other dehydrated fruit and it's gobble up at the bar...
