I'm very excited to have finally added this to the tiki section of my bookshelf. I'm also glad I decided on the hardcover version.

I did not know there was a hardcover version.

And what happened to that girl that was going to write a Kahiki book about the same time as yours Jeff?

Not Greg and Melissa, Her name was Nathile not Nathalie it's like saying Nathalie with a lisp that's how I remember her name.

I met her at that dentist tiki party with mostly FOM members at it.

When asking about the Kahiki she would say " I'm the one who really is going to write a book about the Kahiki" Ha! I guess that did not pan out.

At the time there were about 7 people doing a book about the Kahiki.

I would like to see a book of the early Kahiki drinks put out, a few people have them all.

Heck nobody is going to open a tiki bar and use those drinks at least not the people who have them.

Damn write a book about it and get them out there, way more chance of you doing that than opening a tiki bar.

Damn don't just let them fade away and disappear as we all fade away and disappear.

Someone get me all of those old Kahiki recipes and I'll put one together. Jeff Berry hit the sweet spot in his books with the mix of recipes and history, so that's the approach I'd take. If it ain't broke...

I didn't either. History Press doesn't normally do hardcovers. I poked around and discovered this is the "Library Edition." Must be a limited run.

I've never seen a hardcover!! I didn't know it existed and I'm one of the authors!!!! Nice score. Where in the hell did you find it???

Yeah, a Kahiki recipe book would be nice but I don't know anyone with all the food and drink recipes.

Look for the Ohio Tiki book next year!!

Mahalo,
Jeff

I know, right? HP isn't the greatest when it comes to communication.

(Edit:) Holy crap! It looks like my book may have a hardcover library edition as well!

Oh, well. I'm sure I can find shelf space SOMEWHERE.

Good news; its been out for some time!

I got mine from thriftbooks, where as of today both hardcover and paperback versions are cheaper than Amazon (with free shipping for $10 orders).

Well I have not heard of his death.
Maybe yes or no, I could find no obituary online.

Kay Oliver looked very well when we saw her at that hills market event.
I bet she has them.
Not to mention Skip or even Jim, I got the Navy grog recipe from him.
Jim said "it fell off of the wall where they had it tacked and I took it home and copied it so it would not get lost"
What about the Tasos you know they have them, Mitch Boych He had to have them so does his brother now have them.
Lee Henrys family?

I got that Navy Grog recipe from three different people and get this they all gave me the same one so I think it's right.
Did promise the second person to give it to me that I would not give it to anyone so I have not, but I won't let it die with me it will be in my personal cookbook when I die.

For a long time Kay was the only person that would make the Navy grog and they had to go to the pharmacist to get an ingredient.

I bet there are at least 12 or more people alive that have all of those drink recipes.
Thing is are they the fist families property or the second owners (the guy from Youngstown) or are the Tasos or maybe none of the above owns them.

Did all that go with the many sales of the Kahiki? or is that all so old it does not apply.
When I sold my restaurant the recipes all went with the place but we made no specifics on if I owned them or he owned them.

Heck I could have opened up next door and sold the same stuff only better because I don't pinch every dime and buy cheep crap.
