“Why This Young Hawaiian Chef Still Cooks Underground.”  

In traditional Hawaiian culture, it was important for food to take you closer to the Gods. Come to Oahu, Hawai’i, where young chef Kalā Domingo, a culinary student who also works for his father‘s catering company, gives Native Hawaiian kids a taste of this godly, traditional food, showing them where their food comes from–including making sure pigs are Ma’e ma’e (clean) — prepping sugar cane and banana leaves, cooking with kuleana (responsibility) — and making the whole thing come together in an Imu, a pit oven or underground steam cooker.
