Recipes From Around The World

Welcome to

Welcome to KauKauChef.Com with food recipes from around the world. KauKau in the Hawaiian pidgen language means food. So, is this a food site of Hawaiian foods?......partly, but it's really more than that as these food recipes are from around the world, obtained from various sources, friends, family, restaurants, countries, cities and towns I've vistited and some that I have no idea of where they came from...and they are here because they are good.

I do have a lot of food recipes from Hawaii as I lived there for 20 years as I managed the Drysdale's restaurants in Kona, Hawaii. Those restaurants are no longer there but the memories are alive and well.

Hawaii is the melting pot of the pacific. Immigrants from all over the pacific migrated to Hawaii. The Chinese, Japanese, Filipinos and Portugese all came to work in the fields and brought all their cultures, languages, and food recipes with them, creating a unique Hawaiian cuisine.

But there is more than just Hawaiian cuisine on this site as you can see by perusing the list on he right side of this page. There are recipes from all over the world, some I have eaten and some I have not but they all really look good.

So let's get the show on the road...if you would like to contact me, there are two contact locations in the upper right hand corner of every page.

If you have a recipe or two that you would like to share with us, that would be great, just send it to me and I'll be glad to pass it along to everyone with credit to you.

I've tried to make navigation of the site as easy as possible but probably the best way to find a recipe would be to use the search box. There is a website search box on top of the right hand side of every page so you can list a food or food recipe and it will let you know if it is available and where it is located. Try to keep your search words to not more than two. Example: If you're looking for "Baby Back Ribs With Hoisin Sauce", just enter "back ribs" or "baby back" or "hoisin sauce" and you then can review the recipes that contain those words.

The first 3 results of your search will show ads from Google but they are not my ads, they just come with the search box.

In any event, thank you for visiting KauKauChef.Com and hope you will come back often. We will welcome you with open arms and great food recipes, tips and a little human interest.
