Taro Rolls

Taro Bread

Hawaiian taro is more versatile today than just traditional poi. In the islands it's also made into chips (as in potato chips) and even flour which is then used to bake pancakes, or bread. Our Polynesian Cultural Center Alii Luau recipe calls for a delicious dinner roll form.
