Now that it's officially feeling like summer, it seems appropriate to throw a wonderful Tiki bash! This dinner party won't be terribly authentic, but a tribute to some of the 1950's Tiki kitsch we've come to recognize. Dress up and bring a friend for a fun family style dinner, and we'll see you then!

Menu detail

Trumpet Mushroom and Macadamia Nut Poke
We'll roast king trumpet mushrooms, and serve them dressed with toasted macadamia nuts with a little chile and lime to serve over crispy fried taro root chips.
Water chestnuts, wrapped in smoked eggplant bacon, with a brown sugar, soy, ginger glaze. Rumaki is a mock-Polynesian hors d'oeurve that appeared around the 1940's. It was always one of my favorites when I went to my Aunt Karens house! Here, of course, we make it vegan. If you haven't tried rumaki, it might be your next party staple.
Ginger Meatball and Roasted Pineapple Skewers
Small Plate
We'll infuse our signature meatballs with ginger, and serve them skewered with roasted pineapple, and a squeeze of lime.
Mango, Papaya, and Jicama Salad with Pineapple Vinaigrette
Small Plate
A fantastic fruity salad mixed with greens and a Roasted Pineapple Vinaigrette!
'Kalua Pork' Tamales
We'll serve our 'Kalua pork' in banana leaf steamed tamales, served with a Salsa Verde, and a Kona coffee mole.
Coconut Ice Cream with Rum and Lime Syrup
A nice sweet ending to a fun Tiki bash!
