I want my children to be well acquainted with their heritage. I'm so proud of all of the different countries that my ancestors hail from. A big part of every culture is the food. So I try to make all different kinds of food so my kids can have something to identify with. Kalua pork is one of the most well-known staples of Hawaiian cuisine. And I love that I can make it at home in the crock pot. It would be a lot cooler if I could cook it like my ancestors did but that's a bit hard in the middle of California. Yeah, this will have to do for now and perhaps someday we will make it the traditional way.
