This week in the kitchen we have the multi-talented singer-songwriter Josh Tatofi in the kitchen. This Maui Baldwin Highs school graduate has been music in his blood. Growing up in the Kapena lineage his father Tivani Tatofi was 1/3 of the supergroup Kapena. He has been playing music since the age of 8 and I remember seeing Josh running around as a kid in different green rooms and backstage at different shows that I either hosted or attended. His first recording was with another Maui group Ekolou. Still, only 30 years old this talented guy has a long career ahead of him and this week are excited he is back in the kitchen with us cooking lu pulu.
Cut the stems off the taro leaves. Slice your onion. Stack together three taro leaves and place half a can of corned beef into the middle of the leaves. Add onions to taste. Top with a heaping spoonful of mayonnaise. Pour half a can of coconut into the leaves. Wrap the taro leaves from left to right, bottom and top. Then wrap with foil. Steam for about 1 hour and 15 minutes to 1 hour and 30 minutes to fully cook the taro leaves.
