Early Japanese immigrants to Hawaii
Each half hour show – punctuated with local produce updates, and healthy inspirations – will be spent with a family or individual who has a family recipe to share.Whether we’re in Hanalei, Wahiawa, Honolulu, Hilo or Kaunakakai we’ll find families who continue to keep the tradition alive – recipes they continue to make that came from an ancestor.While in their kitchen or backyard, we learn about individual characters and family history. We meet the grandmother, the son, and the niece – the person that has taken the lead of learning how to make the family recipe best – we delve into their family albums, listen to their stories and learn more about who they are by following their recipe to its origin.
Family Ingredients will examine our European and Asian influences traveling to countries with Hawaiʻi ties. A path to discovery, a lesson in geography and a history reminder of where our ancestors came from. We travel, we search, we discover, we eat – celebrating our diverse multicultural influences that make us who we are today.
