Kauai ohana luau: piling it on the plate

Luau plate

There’s just a slight difference between these 2 plates but one thing is so blatantly missing: the poi. And I don’t know if it was a slip-up on the part of the party planner or the high price tag of fresh poi, but I’m sure I wasn’t the only one who noticed that it was lacking on the buffet table. For dessert, family members were asked to contribute a dish and I made 40 mini cannoli. We brought cannoli shells over from Italy but since there’s no sheep milk ricotta on Kauai, I made do with plain ricotta, cream cheese and diced candied fruits. I couldn’t believe my eyes when they disappeared in minutes. Buon appetito fo’ real.
