“Lure of the Luau”, Register-Guard, 4/11/12
My mom, Cheryl, is preparing a good portion of the food for the wedding. I think St. Cheryl is a more accurate term for her. Not only is she an excellent and very experimental cook, but she also writes a monthly human interest/food story for the local newspaper, The Register-Guard. Since we’ve leaned more towards a Southern cuisine for the wedding, my mom has been testing out some pulled-pork recipes – a great option for feeding large quantities of people. In addition to that, we all just vacationed in Maui where she and my step-father attended a luau, with pulled pork straight from roasted pig, and it became the topic of her most recent R-G story. Also included in the story are recipes for pineapple coleslaw (so delicious) and purple sweet potatoes with cococut – both contenders for side dishes at the wedding. Perhaps it’ll be a Southern/Hawaiian cuisine, but who cares, in today’s society with all the information and culture we have so readily available, it’s foolish to limit yourself to just one theme or taste.
