(Hawaiian) - Luau originally referred to only the leaves of the taro plant, which are eaten as a vegetable. It then came to refer to dishes prepared with the leaves, and finally to the feasts at which the dishes were served.
The island of Oahu, or the Gathering Place, has been the dominant hub of all the Hawaiian islands ever since King Kamehameha himself moved his capital to Honolulu almost 200 years ago. The Polynesian Cultural Center, situated in Laie on Oahu's North Shore is home to the most authentic Oahu luaus.
