Kau Kau Kitchen
by Leilehua Yuen

     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."  You'll seldom find "Pacific Rim Cuisine" here - mostly just good home-cookin', island style.

overripe mangos
orange juice
skinless chicken thighs

Mash the mango meat and mix with orange juice. Add water to make a slightly runny insipid drink. Place the thichs in a pot and add the juice mix to cover. Simmer until the mix cooks halfway down. The thighs should be very tender by then. Grill or b-b-q the chicken to brown. Serve on a bed of rice and with a crisp green salad.
