The Ultimate Summer Party
Cool cooking for hot nights.
Cooooool. That's what we all want to be during these long, hot, summer days, which, in Hawai'i, extend into September and October. It's time to enjoy a tropical drink on the la-nai as the sun sets on the horizon; time to dine leisurely with family and friends around a table laden with delicious food. But who wants to slave over a hot stove while the party is gaining momentum? With our Ultimate Summer Party menu, everything is cool: the food and the hosts.
They say that the perfect hostess is like a duck: paddling like hell under the water, but calm and serene on the surface. This party is about paddling hard before the party, then sitting back and enjoying yourself. You'll cook at home early in the day, wrap it all up and put it in the refrigerator until party time. When your guests arrive, enjoy the sunset with a glass of Tropical Punch. Ready for dinner? Pull the serving trays out of the refrigerator and be a part of the party. Cool, huh?
Begin with the best and freshest Island-grown produce and seafood available at farmers' markets or your supermarket. With quality ingredients, there's little you have to do to be a star cook. So stay cool as you throw our Ultimate Summer Party.
