Taro root mashed to a paste that can be soupy or doughy, poi is the signature food of Hawaii. For those who did not grow up eating it, it likely is a taste that needs to be acquired, especially if the poi is not so fresh. Poi ferments quickly and can become, shall we say, funky. It’s easier to appreciate when used as an ingredient in other foods, such as poi banana pudding, poi bread, and the poi donuts made at Liliha Bakery in Honolulu.
