Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Gannon's Hali'imaile General Store is actually a restaurant housed in the old general store/grocery of a pineapple plantation on the Hawaiian island of Maui. She opened "the store" 12 years ago as the center of a catering business, but her customers demanded that it be a restaurant, too, and that's what it very shortly became. While it started as a simple place, it is now a sophisticated restaurant. Although there are a few holdovers from the early days, most of the recipes in her cookbook are chef's recipes, "Hawai'i Regional Style" (the name for a special collaboration between top chefs and local growers): Sesame-Crusted Mahimahi with Coconut-Curry Cabbage, Macadamia Nut-Crusted Soft-Shell Crab, Seafood Martini with Wasabi-Ginger Cocktail Sauce. There are also lots of delicious desserts from Gannon's daughter, the pastry chef. For area libraries and others where restaurant books are popular. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
From the Publisher
"The Hali'imaile General Store is a vestige of the pineapple plantations era recast as an airy, peach-colored restaurant that serves a smashing version of Hawaiian cuisine....At some point during the meal I experienced a stunning, if subliterate and hardly original epiphany: Maui good." —David Herndon, Travel & Leisure"[Beverly Gannon] offers insight into why she created certain dishes or where she learned to make them." —Bon Appetit

    We love this cookbook and the restaurant

    Having eaten at the restaurant in February, 2007, we gladly left with a copy of the cookbook. We have enjoyed every recipe that we have tried in the book. The wasabi viniagrette is wonderful, as is the cheesecake and the mango-pineapple dessert. Living in the DC area makes getting the ingredients fairly easy for us.

    visually appealing--recipes that remind you of vacation!

    Ate at Gannon's restaurant last summer and wanted to bring a little taste of that great experience into my home. The book is well-written and the pictures are beautiful. I have tried about ten of the recipes and had good success with about half of them. A problem for me is finding the same great quality of ingredients that Gannon uses in her recipes. There is an emphasis on fresh fish and produce, and these are somewhat difficult to locate in my smalltown location in the midwest. Also, many of the recipes are quite time-consuming, even though she calls this 'home coooking.' But, I have really enjoyed experimenting with some new flavors, and every dessert I have tried has been a success. This book is worth buying just to look at the pictures and read the text!

    Outstanding!

    Having recently eaten at the General Store many times while in Maui, I can attest that their food is truly fine. I was pleased to find some of my favorites in the cookbook; the recipes are not difficult, the photos are wonderful. It is well done. Enjoy. Mahalo.
