Leilehua YuenLeilehua Yuen
Leilehua Yuen grew up in Hilo and Puna, surrounded by fine cooks who were willing to share their knowledge. "I don't like that" was not an option in the Yuen household, so Leilehua learned to enjoy, and prepare, a wide variety of foods from the diverse cultures found in Hawai`i. Her studies of local food lore led to an interest in how various cultures approached the many intricacies of homemaking, and through the 1980s she wrote a series of newspaper columns on local cooking and household hints. This led to Leilehua becoming known as "The Hawaiian Heloise" (for those old enough to remember Heloise's Household Hints). The Kau Kau Kitchen cooking column went on to become cookbooks, a radio show, a short-lived TV show (station went out off the air), and a Japanese television special. Now, it is on-line here and at www.KauKauKitchen.com.
