Hawai’i Regional Cuisine has become a global
ambassador for the Islands, receiving international accolades as it celebrates
both our cultural diversity and the bounty of our land and ocean. This exceptional
movement touches each Hawai’i restaurateur in one way or another, and has helped
elevate Hawai’i to one of the world’s most celebrated dining destinations.

American Express, we’re proud to support Hawai’i’s extraordinary restaurants and
to sponsor Honolulu Magazine’s prestigious Hale ‘Aina Awards as well as this exclusive
cookbook. On the pages that follow, you’ll find recipes from a selection of Hale
‘Aina Award-winning chefs, presented to help you bring the unique character and
flavors of Hawai’i’s favorite restaurants to meals you can prepare at home and
share at gatherings with friends and family.

helping you achieve all the rewards life has to offer.
