"Salt of the Earth" may be a cliché, but it truly describes Tylun Pang. Chef, husband, father, cookbook author, fisherman and educator, Pang brings to Maui’s culinary scene a sense of place as he shares with the world Hawai‘i’s food culture at Fairmont Kea Lani’s Ko Restaurant and in What Maui Likes to Eat, Pang’s award-winning compilation of food history and recipes from Hawai‘i’s plantation days. Proceeds from this cookbook have raised more than $6,000 for scholarships for students at Maui Culinary Academy. In 2012, the Maui County Farm Bureau honored Chef Pang with their “Friend of Agriculture” ‘Aipono Award, citing his prodigious support of local farms and ranches. In 2013, Ko Restaurant won Gold ‘Aiponos for Restaurant of the Year and Best Hawai‘i Regional Cuisine.

Ka Baibala Hemolele - The Hawaiian Bible

After ten-plus years, significant funding support from many foundations and individuals, and the work of dozens of scholars, teachers, and volunteers, Ka Baibala Hemolele is available in the new orthography, which uses diacritics. It is the first time that the Hawaiian language bible has been formatted and printed with diacritical marking.

Trim size: 6 x 9 inches; Page count: 1456 pp

Includes: presentation page, 6 maps, original study questions about the maps, genealogy pages, and an introduction by Baibala Hemolele Project Director Helen Kaupu Kaowili, ribbon marker
