Building a Hawaiian Earth Oven (Imu) | Day Two: Light 'Em and Fill 'Em

For three days The Culinary Edge TV filmed the building, lighting, and eating from an authentic imu or Hawaiian Earth Oven in Pahoa on Hawai'i Island. The filming was the result of a local partnership between a community group, The Men of PA'A, and an agricultural nonprofit, the Hawai'i Sheep and Goat Association. On day two of this three part video, I'opa and his crew light the imu and fill it with meat and vegetables. Then they cover the imu to let it cook overnight. Stay tuned and follow us for Part 3. Thanks for watching the Culinary Edge TV!
