Comfort food doesn’t just comfort the soul, it’s guaranteed to make you SMILE!
HI Now host, Kainoa Carlson, joins Chef Chris Fujimoto from Sumida Farms and Mike Orozco, Director of Communications and Marketing at Hawaii Dental Service in the HI Now kitchen to share a special recipe as part of HDS’ 60th Anniversary. This ono, delicious pot pie will have your mouth watering, and it’s good for your teeth!
HDS’s 60th Anniversary logo uses the taro (i.e. Kalo) leaf as a symbol of good health for all Hawaii families. Taro – a staple food for Native Hawaiians, many Polynesian and Pacific Island cultures, and Hawaii locals – has fluoride properties, meaning it strengthens your tooth enamel and aids in preventing cavities. It is also a complex carb that satisfies a hungry belly and is rich in nutrients, strengthening the body’s immune system.
