It’s the most wonderful time of the year—time for UH-mazing holiday recipes from our University of Hawaiʻi ʻohana!

We enjoyed some delicious submissions in 2022, including Chef Alan Tsuchiyama’s Grandma Yama’s New Year’s Day ozoni, Piʻikea Hardy-Kahaleoumi’s hot crab sweet potato salad and Joshua Kealanahele’s shortbread cookies.

UH News invites members of our UH ʻohana to share a recipe and short write up for the holiday season (to include Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, New Years and any seasonal event our families celebrate). These will run in UH News November–December.

Each submission should include:

  1. Recipe
  2. A short explanation of why it is special or significant to you, or why your family serves the dish during which holiday (one or two paragraphs)
  3. Photos of the prepared dish and the UH person who is submitting the recipe
  4. Contact information, name, title, campus, email and phone number for the person who is submitting the recipe

For questions or to submit your UH-mazing holiday recipe, contact We look forward to learning more about you and your holiday traditions and foods and sharing these with others.
