Award-winning restaurateur, United Airlines celebrity chef, best-selling cookbook author and TV host Sam Choy educates people the world over about the wonderful, diverse cultures and flavors that culminate in Hawaii.
My parents introduced my brother, sisters, and me to a wide variety of different foods early on. We all shared the cooking responsibilities in our home and in my father's restaurant. On the weekends, the whole family helped to prepare traditional Hawaiian luaus for sometimes up to 800 tourists!
My Hawaiian-German mother, Clairemoana, enrolled me in the local Kapiolani Community College hoping that I would hit the books and find a subject that interested me. Boy, did I love food! I realized that I was happiest when I was cooking.
After working hard in several kitchens of the major Hawai`i hotels, I finally opened my first stand-alone restaurant on the Big Island of Hawai`i in 1981. Today I have 9 restaurants that bear my name, including four in Tokyo, one in Guam and one in San Diego. My dad, Hung Sam Choy, would have been proud.
I attribute my success to the amazing mix of cultures and flavors that make Hawai`i unique. You heard that saying, "Lucky you live Hawaii!"? I say that everyday!

The Story of Hawaiian Host
More than half a century ago on Maui, young Mamoru Takitani discovered something special. Upstairs, above his family's business, he dipped Hawaii's sweet, crunchy Macadamia nuts into a secret blend of milk chocolate, creating a candy the likes of which had never been tasted. Word of his delicious confection spread like the rich aroma of chocolate. Everyone wanted to know the recipe but that was his secret.
In 1960, Mamoru learned that a famous candy shop in Kaimuki, on Oahu, was for sale. He and his wife Aiko moved there, eager to share their amazing discovery. In no time, Aiko was driving all over town in her station wagon delivering the unbelievably creamy and delicious chocolate covered Macadamia nuts.
The world's love of Hawaii and Takitani's amazing confection grew hand in hand. Today, most visitors leave Hawaii with a box of Hawaii's original chocolate covered Macadamia nuts. Jet planes have replaced Aiko's station wagon. The chocolate recipe is still a secret. The promise of excellence is continually fulfilled. And Mamoru Takitani's dream has come true: loved by everyone who tries them, Hawaiian Host candies are Hawaii's Gift to the World®.

Coffee In Hawai`i
Kona, Hawaii is about the furthest point on the globe from coffee's ancestral origins in the mountains of Ethiopia. It took an odyssey of hundreds of years for coffee to reach Hawaii's shores and establish itself in the only coffee producing region in the United States. Kona coffee's unique taste and quality are attributable to its lava soil and climate that includes a canopy of clouds during the hottest parts of the day and the right amount of rainfall at the right times throughout the growing cycle. Since Coffee is a self pollinating plant almost all coffee varieties are genetically the same. It is only the growing conditions that will dictate the quality and flavor of the beans.
"Hawaii's Fishes" by John P. Hoover
Hawaii Tribune Herald; reviewed by Jim Witty.
It's a guidebook and more. In addition to providing basic nuts and bolts information on Hawaiian fish likely to be encountered while prowling the reef, Hoover includes many tidbits culled from ancient Hawaiian stories and fishing lore and hints for aquarists. Hawaii's Fishes also includes chapters on the state's undersea environment, fish anatomy, and where to snorkel and dive.
"Hawaii's Sea Creatures" by John P. Hoover
This is THE book for identifying over 500 species of invertebrates found in Hawaiian waters--the book that Hawaii's divers have long awaited! This hefty 2 pound volume is filled with excellent photos of both the common and rare. But where it truly excels is in the quality and depth of information provided. John Hoover rooted out not only the scientific and Hawaiian names of each species, but what the names mean. He scoured the scientific literature for the latest proposed scientific names. He discovered sources of fascinating anecdotes, past uses, and Hawaiian perceptions adding depth to what is known about the animals. This well researched book is the first comprehensive Hawaii invertebrate book since Edmondson's 1944 Reef and Shore Fauna. Truly, it sets the standard for all regional invertebrate books to follow.
Blue Hawaii (available on VHS or DVD) 1961
Night and you
And blue Hawaii
The night is heavenly
And you are heaven to me
And blue Hawaii
With all this loveliness
There should be love
Come with me
While the moon is on the sea,
The night is young
And so are we, so are we
Dreams come true
In blue Hawaii
And mine could all come true
This magic night of nights with you
"Blue Hawaii" with Elvis Presley
Elvis Presley's seventh film was the first of his "Hawaii trilogy" (including Girls! Girls! Girls! and Paradise, Hawaiian Style). While its story is daft--the King has just been released from his Army posting in Italy and returned to the islands, where he's trying to avoid working in his father's fruit business--the music is not: "Blue Hawaii," "Almost Always True," and the beautiful "Can't Help Falling in Love." Angela Lansbury plays Elvis's mother, who can't seem to get through to him. Directed by the star's frequent collaborator, Norman Taurog (G.I. Blues). --Tom Keogh
Donovan's Reef (1963)
John Wayne's last film with mentor and long-time collaborator John Ford (The Searchers) is a 1963 comedy about a group of war veterans settled on a South Pacific island. When the daughter of one of them (Jack Warden) comes for a visit, the freewheeling status quo between the boys is disrupted. This is Ford in his chummy, amiable, roughhousing mode--think of Victor McLaglen's drunken fight scene in Ford's She Wore a Yellow Ribbon--and it is entirely pleasurable. Wayne is comfortable in his man's-man role, and Lee Marvin (who played Wayne's nemesis in The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance) is effectively roguish. --Tom Keogh
Day OF Deceit: The Truth About FDR and Pearl Harbor
It was not long after the first Japanese bombs fell on the American naval ships at Pearl Harbor that conspiracy theories began to circulate, charging that Franklin Roosevelt and his chief military advisors knew of the impending attack well in advance. Robert Stinnett, who served in the U.S. Navy with distinction during World War II, examines recently declassified American documents and concludes that, far more than merely knowing of the Japanese plan to bomb Pearl Harbor, Roosevelt deliberately steered Japan into war with America.
Stinnett's argument draws on both circumstantial evidence--the fact, for example, that in September 1940 Roosevelt signed into law a measure providing for a two- ocean navy that would number 100 aircraft carriers--and, more importantly, on American governmental documents that offer apparently incontrovertible proof that Roosevelt knowingly sacrificed American lives in order to enter the war on the side of England. Although obviously troubled by his discovery of a systematic plan of deception on the part of the American government, Stinnett does not take deep issue with its outcome. Roosevelt, he writes, faced powerful opposition from isolationist forces, and, against them, the Pearl Harbor attack was "something that had to be endured in order to stop a greater evil--the Nazi invaders in Europe who had begun the Holocaust and were poised to invade England." Sure to excite discussion, Stinnett's book offers what may be the final word on the terrible matter of Pearl Harbor. --Gregory McNamee --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
