Hawaiian Food (as Amy asked)
So Amy asked me to post updates about the food research paper I'm doing in Hawaii, and I'll do it here.
I haven't actually left yet (I fly out Saturday) but I'm trying to get ideas and things for the paper. Since I'm writing for classes on ethnic studies and immigration, I'm gearing it around questions (I have to justify my work, right?)
-How has each wave of migrants contributed to contemporary Hawaiian cuisine?
-How much of contemporary Hawaiian cuisine can be traced back to pre-settlement Polynesian mores?
-Is Hawaiian food any healthier than mainland cuisine? Why?
...if you guys know anything about Hawaiian food, or know where to look, post! Kthxbai.
