Entertainer Taylor Hicks tastes his way across Hawaii in search of the island’s most iconic foods. First, Taylor hits the beach and fries up some spam for a local surfer snack. Next, he learns to slow smoke pork, the Hawaiian way. Then, he does the hula to harvest taro root, the main ingredient in Poi. Later, Taylor learns the art of planting pineapples. Finally, he learns how to scale the tree of life to make a much-loved sweet coconut dessert: Haupia. It’s a heaping helping of aloha as we taste the Paradise of the Pacific’s most celebrated foods.
