Lovely Spam! Wonderful Spam!

spamcan-hawaii.jpgMy wife won’t touch the stuff, but most people in Hawaii have an incredible affection for Hormel’s infamous ham-like meat in a can, Spam. And tomorrow brings the annual Waikiki Spam Jam:

“More than 20,000 celebrants are expected to cheer the glory of Spam along Kalakaua Avenue. They’ll have their choice of luncheon-meat-infused foods (consider, from the Radisson Prince Kuhio Hotel, Reconstructed Spam Chicken Cordon Bleu with Sherry Cream Sauce). And to top it off, they will crown Hawaii’s first Mr. or Ms. Spam, from among five finalists chosen for their ideas for a Spam commercial.”

Can’t make it? Just nuts for Spam dishes? Don’t miss Ann Kondo Corum’s Spam Cookbook, now in its second edition.

    I can’t help thinking that Spam would be the perfect theme ingredient for an episode of Iron Chef Hawai’i.

    The challenger presents four dishes. SPAM Katsu with foie gras on roasted hamakua mushrooms, SPAM flan with lobster curry bisque on burnt mango chips, Li Hing SPAM, and SPAMoni (for dessert).
