I've got Beachbum Berry's drink recipe books (actually the two-in-one version) and this Tiki heyday . This is not the strongest of Jeff "Beachbum" Berry's many other, excellent, works on Tiki cocktail history and mixology

I've got Beachbum Berry's drink recipe books (actually the two-in-one version) and this Tiki heyday food recipe book is a delightful surprise. For my upcoming Texas Hold-'em Poker party, I'm planning to serve one each from this book: appetizer, main dish and drink. My only disappointment is that there are too many items that are "deep fried", but I do realize that back in the day, that was a main cooking method. This is not the strongest of Jeff "Beachbum" Berry's many other, excellent, works on Tiki cocktail history and mixology. The drinks recipes themselves are excellent, but there are too few of them.

What a find! I've got Beachbum Berry's drink recipe books (actually the two-in-one version) and this Tiki heyday food recipe book is a delightful surprise. For my upcoming Texas Hold-'em Poker party, I'm planning to serve one each from this book: appetizer, main dish and drink. My only disappointment is that there are too many items that are "deep fried", but I do realize that back in the day, that was a main cooking method.
That the recipes are Tiki restaurant concocted and not really authentic Polynesian doesn't bother me one whit. I'm enjoying recreating a Tiki mindset and decorating theme in my house, and now adding food to the great drinks just kicks it up a notch. Thanks, Beachbum Berry!

This is a food-centered book from Beachbum Berry, following his brilliant Grog Log which recreates the classic exotic cocktails. The couple of recipes that I've tried turned out well, but the cookbook is a little minimal, especially in terms of presentation. After all, good food was not the main reason to go to Trader Vic's, was it? Strong drinks and exotic atmosphere had to be higher on the list. And the atmosphere/presentation is a bit lacking in this book. But really, I shouldn't focus on a minor gripe in a positive review! Beachbum Berry has done more than anyone to bring the tastes of the tiki/tropical/south seas/exotica movement back to us. And this is a fine work in that direction.

I am a Chef by day. I found the recipes to be great. I have made almost all of them. The recipe are out of this world. Take the time to read the recipe before you start. Most are easy to prepare. Have a Luau or Tiki party and enjoy the great old time food. BeachBum Berry has a great little book. It is Well worth the money. Well worth the money if you are into Tiki. I am.

I got this as a way to keep in touch with my iner tikiness. The 50's were a great era and this is proof.

This book is a nice cross section of the Tikis of yore, with a focus on the food rather than the drinks (though there's a few). My only disappointment with this book is that the its fabrication is less than spectacular. Other than that, the content is great. When I cook with it, I'll probably just copy the receipes as to not risk damaging it.

Nicely done by "The Bum" once again! I haven't found anything in this book that hasn't been awesome! Very highly recommended!

I order this book on a Wednesday and it came in my mailbox on a Saterday. What I'am saying is that I it only toke me 3 days to get this book after I order it off of Amazon. Thanks Amazon and I will do some cooking out of this book
This is not the strongest of Jeff "Beachbum" Berry's many other, excellent, works on Tiki cocktail history and mixology. The drinks recipes themselves are excellent, but there are too few of them. The rest of the recipes are food recipes and while that's not the problem, the problem IS that these recipes which Berry has unearthed after a whole lot of trouble simply aren't all worth unearthing.

Tiki establishments were known for their drinks and not their food. (The only exception to this rule was/is Trader Vic's. Look for the books written by "Trader Vic" Bergeron himself.)

Get this to complete your Beachbum collection and for the very cool Kevin Kidney illustrations, but skip the food recipes and jump straight to the cocktails.
