Imu Experience

The ʻAi Pono Program will include gathering, prepping, setting, opening, and eating of the Imu, Underground Oven. A glorious selection of Kalua pig, chicken laulau, ʻUala (Sweet Potato), ʻUlu (Breadfruit) and Kalo (Taro) served hot and fresh. The style of cooking in an Imu, gives the participants the opportunity to cook like the ancients cooked and taste but a gimpse of old Hawaii.  The action of cooking together puts all our good energies into the foods which in turn makes it taste amazing. ALOHA is the secret ingredient.
