Kauai Luau With Chef Leo

Kauai luau chef

Hawaiians know how to party! Luau has been around since the 1800s and locals continue to celebrate all of their special occasions with this time honored tradition that includes great food, family, entertainment and the Imu, or underground oven..

A luau with Chef Leo is unique because unlike most luaus on island, you actually get to witness the ancient practice of preparing the Imu, or underground oven. Setup and cooking can take about 20 hours and up to 3-4 people, but don’t worry, you can come and go as you please and simply show up for dinner when it’s ready. Foods prepared in the Imu are steamed to perfection by hot lava rocks under a bed of banana and ti leaves. This is the secret to the famous Hawaiian Kalua pork; other foods cooked in the Imu are sweet potatoes, kabocha pumpkin, beets, and carrots. Additional traditional foods like poi, lomilomi salmon, and rice are prepared separately and everything can be tailored to your particular tastes.

Honoring guests is an important part of Hawaiian culture and essential to any great luau. Hula has become a world famous form of entertainment but for Hawaiians, it is a special gift used to honor their guests, the ancestors, the earth, and the celestial deities. Each performance brings a legend to life using dance, song, drumming, and fire dance. We look forward to honoring you with shows from the best available dancers and drummers island wide.
