On February 11th, the GU Eating Society teamed up with the Georgetown Hawaii Club and Whole Foods DC to bring the Georgetown community an event that cannot be forgotten – a Hawaiian feast! The event was a huge success; people from all over campus enjoyed some great Hawaiian music, learned about Hawaiian culture, and of course, at delicious, freshly prepared Hawaiian Food.
All food was provided by Whole Foods DC and the Hawaiian club. Whole Foods offered us a great selection of fresh, organic produce (including freshly pre-cut pineapple, which made the preparation so much easier!), in addition to the nori sheets, the 365 Calrose rice and 365 Teriakyi Sauce that was used in making Spam Musubi. The Hawaiian club provided specialty grocery items that cannot be found in typical grocery stores here in DC.
So what did we eat? Here's a sample of the menu:
The all-time star of the feast was the Spam Musubi, which was flavorful and filling. Each attendee was able to make their own, while learning about typical Hawaiian foods that represent their cultural background.
Thank you to everyone who came out the event! Special thanks to the Hawaii Club for showing us the ropes of Hawaiian culture and cooking us amazing food. Also special thanks to Whole Foods DC for providing us with real, affordable, and all-natural foods that made the event extra-special.
