Laulau

My sister and her friends made “laulau” for a charity fundraiser last month. Laulau is a Hawaiian food made with butterfish, pork and beef wrapped in taro leaf covered with ti leaves. It’s steamed, tastes a little salty and goes well with rice.

It’s a popular food for fundraisers (I helped made it often when I was a Boy Scout and also for my judo and karate clubs).

It’s a food that you should really try if you want to sample Hawaiian cuisine. Don’t eat too many, though (it will give you the runs!)

ラウラウ

先月妹と彼女の友人達は慈善団体の募金イベントのために『ラウラウ』を作った。ラウラウとはハワイの現地料理で、マナガツオ、豚肉、牛肉、ハワイアン塩をタロ芋葉で包んで、センネンボクの葉でまとめてかぶせた料理。蒸して作ったラウラウは塩分が高いため、ハワイの高温環境で長持ちする。味は塩が効いていてご飯にとても合う。

ハワイでは資金集めによく使われる料理で、私はボーイスカウトや空手と柔道クラブのイベントによく手伝って作った料理だ。

本物のハワイの現地料理を味わたいなら、ラウラウを一度食べる必要がある(但し、数多くを食べない方がいい(見事に下痢するよ!)
