At times when missionaries of various religious orientations still haunted the South Pacific islands and atolls, it has been said that having a missionary for a Lūʻau as the long pig was a major festivity for the indigenes. There are rumors that Catholic missionaries were far more succulent than Anglicans, but your Revered Chef can‘t vouch for that, at least not from personal experience.
Given his fond memories of Tiki parties, Your Revered Chef would like to propose a less cannibalistic version of the classic Long Pig Lūʻau, resorting to the famous Huli Huli style.
Get a gingerbread man at your local sweetmeats trader and some fresh minced meat at your favorite local butcher.
Cover the gingerbread man with the spiced (use allspice, salt & pepper) minced meat, while carefully tracing the original contours. Cover in banana leaves and put in the oven at 180°C for about 45 minutes. Serve hot with peanut sauce.
An ice-cold Mai Tai goes nicely with this!
Your Revered Chef
