WEST HAWAII TODAY | BIG ISLAND ENTERTAINMENT SCENE FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 2016 | 5 New cookbook features recipes for celebrations, festivities “Celebrating in Hawaii: Favorite Recipes for Holidays and Special Occasions” featuring easy-toprepare dishes for all of our islands’ many celebrations and festivities was recently released. Muriel Miura has spent decades sampling and deciphering Hawaii’s many culinary treasures. In the cookbook, she brings together the choicest dishes Hawaii’s multi-ethnic population serves at gatherings — from small ones for just a few people to ones for the entire ohana. The 224-page book, published by Mutual Publishing, features 150 recipes covering appetizers, main dishes, sides and desserts, as well as menus, planning tips, and entertainment ideas. Travel book club meets Tuesday at Kona Stories Kona Stories hosts a travel book club discussing “Midnight in Siberia” by David Greene on Tuesday. The group meets at 6:30 p.m. at the store. Book groups are free if books are purchased at Kona Stories, or a $5 donation is requested. “Midnight in Siberia” chronicles Greene’s journey on the Trans-Siberian Railway, a 6,000-mile cross-country trip from Moscow to the Pacific port of Vladivostok, Russia. In quadruple-bunked cabins and stopover towns sprinkled across the country’s snowy landscape, Greene speaks with ordinary Russians about how their lives have changed in the post-Soviet years. The book is a lively travel narrative filled with humor, adventure and insight. It opens a window onto that country’s complicated relationship with democracy and offers a rare look into the soul of twentyfirst century Russia. Info: Brenda or Joy, 324- 0350, www.konastories.com.
