Building a Hawaiian Earth Oven (Imu) | Day Three: Down Fo' Pound
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 three the imu is uncovered revealing a cornucopia of deliciousness. The group tries the kalua lamb and is amazed at how good it is. This demonstration of local Hawaiian culture coming together around food concludes.
