Aloha! I'm planning a menu for about 10-20 adults/kids/family this month in honor of my daughter's 1st birthday. A traditional menu would look something like this: assorted pupu (appetizers), Kalua Pig, Poi, Sweet potatoes, Luau or laulau (pork or chicken and fish wrapped in taro leaves), a chicken dish, Lomi salmon (cold tomato-salmon dish), macaroni salad, fruit (pineapple, mango and papaya), Haupia (coconut pudding), and fruity beverages. I'm going to bend tradition a bit to accomodate my 40+ hour work weeks and motherhood; the goal is stick to the theme but make as much of the food ahead of time as possible.
My Birthday Luau Menu
Mango salsa, thai banana salsa
BBQ pork, tofu, teriyaki beef, veggie kebobs
Sweet potato fries
Birthday Cupcakes (organic white cake and white frosting!)
Banana or coconut cream pie
