Accolades for Chef Kusuma Cooray’s Ocean to Plate Fish Cookbook

Cooray-OceantoPlateBOOK NEWS  |  NEW RELEASE


In the Winter 2015 issue of Foreword Reviews magazine, Ocean to Plate: Cooking Fish with Hawai‘i’s Kusuma Cooray is highlighted as one of its Top Ten Picks from university presses. The book is cited for its “astounding array of Pan Pacific herbs and spices that culminate in two hundred flavor-forward dishes, none of which veer toward tricky kitchen-science projects.”

Kusuma Cooray (seated) is joined by UH Press editorial associate Emma Ching, designer Mardee Melton, and promotion manager Carol Abe at the memorable launch of Ocean to Plate.

The recognition coincided with the VIP book launch last month at Kapi‘olani Community College’s Ka ‘Ikena Laua‘e dining room, where Chef Cooray’s recipes were skillfully prepared and served by students in the KCC Culinary Arts Program.

“The diagrams of fish anatomy, the introductory material, and glossaries alone are worth the price of the book. This is a feast for all who want to add more fish to their home menus but aren’t sure how.”— Wanda A. Adams, writer, cookbook author, and editor of the award-winning seafood guide, A Splash of Aloha

Authors George and Willa Tanabe Honored with JCCH and HHF Awards

On June 21, UH Mānoa professors emeriti George and Willa Tanabe will be honored by the Japanese Cultural Center of Hawai‘i with the Spirit of JCCH award, as community leaders who exemplify Japanese American values of Hawai‘i. The award follows last month’s Historic Hawai‘i Foundation recognition of the Tanabes for their book, Japanese Buddhist Temples in Hawai‘i, with a Preservation Media honor award.

There’s still time to reserve a seat at the JCCH Sharing the Spirit of Aloha awards gala, where you can bid on a hardback copy of Japanese Buddhist Temples in Hawai‘i in the silent auction. (We also donated a copy of Shiho Imai’s Creating the Nisei Market, which explores the history and importance of Japanese American merchants in Hawai‘i.)

Congratulations George and Willa!
