Kau Kau Kitchen
by Leilehua Yuen   

Check it out! Old promo photo of Leilehua found while digging in Kau Kau Kitchen archives - circa 1988. 

     Kau kau, pronounced "cow cow," means "food," or "meal" in Hawaiian pidgin. It is also used to mean "to eat," as in "let's go kau kau" - "let's go eat." The Kau Kau Kitchen cooking column and books have been popular in Hawai`i since the first column appeared in the Hawai`i Tribune Herald in 1983. Though it no longer appears in print media, Leilehua still receives requests for Kau Kau Kitchen books and other products. She is planning to bring back the entire line of Kau Kau Kitchen products.
