I recently came across this Longines Symphonette box set, and I almost didn't grab it until I found out what else was inside. The music is pretty much what you'd expect - absurdly lush string arrangements, dance band versions of Hawaiian songs, and vocals that would be right at home on the Lawrence Welk show (although I should say that you could easily lift all the dance band songs from this collection and make a half-decent album.)



In reality, this is a "Luau in a Box." Stuffed in with the discs was all the original album club ephemera, including two sweepstakes entries for a Hawaiian vacation and a picture book of the islands with "suggested recipes" to accompany your exotic listening party. The recipes, like the music, are highly westernized and geared toward your average 1971 shopping list.



Out of the list the most appetizing ones look like the ginger-honey chicken with snow peas and the honey-butter glazed fruit-and-coconut kebabs.

For the life of me, I can't figure out why broiling was so popular back then...

I've posted the recipes before, but here are videos of Huli Huli chicken and "Chinese" BBQ spareribs. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=K3uR-5UcDqA

Here's one that was reportedly a favorite of my Grandmother in the '60s: Polynesian Pork.

2 pork chops, trimmed and cubed
egg wash
cornstarch
1/4 C chopped green onion
2 bell peppers, julienned
1/2 can (1 1/2 C) chunk pineapple
(drain juice for later use)
1/4 C soy sauce
1/4 C mirin

Coat the cubed pork with the egg wash. Cover with cornstarch and let rest for 15-20 minutes. In a high-sided pan, fry the pork cubes in 1 inch of hot oil until golden brown, being careful not to overfill the pan. Rest the fried pork on a paper towel to drain. Drain the oil from the pan and save the browned cornstarch.

In the same high-sided pan, saute the vegetables in oil over high heat until tender. Remove vegetables from pan. Add browned cornstarch, pineapple juice, soy sauce, and mirin. Cook this mixture, adding more cornstarch until the sauce thickens. Return vegetables to the pan, and add pineapple chunks. Stir until hot. Serve with the fried pork over rice or fried noodles.

Picked up this recipe flier at a little German gift shop on my latest trip to the Midwest. It's an absolute time capsule of a place - the window displays are bleached pure blue. The pile of pamphlets has evidently been sitting there, barely touched, since the 1980s. Fair warning: if you're not a fan of Swiss cheese, these recipes aren't for you.

"Pupu with a Swiss Accent"


"Cheese Puffs Aloha"


"Chäswähe (cheese pie) Kiwi"


"Yakitori Suisse"


"Ku-Jul-Pan" with choice of three fillings

Hang10Tiki hooked me up with some cookbooks at Tiki Oasis
"The New Wiki Wiki Kau Kau"
"The Friends of Iolani Palace Cook Book"
"Tropical Drinks and Pupus from Hawaii"
"Hawaiian Prized Pineapple Recipes'

Some of the cook books are arguable from the "devolution" period but the 1964 Wiki Wiki Kau Kau is undeniably Tiki. Let's see what I can find in here to cook.
