Taro = Purple Happiness

Taro = Purple Happiness

I grew up eating Taro in Hawai’i and now it’s trending and in EVERYTHING!  I love it’s purpleness and sweet, savory taste.  I found this delicious taro cheesecake with coconut and chocolate crust at Cafe 70 degrees in Culver City.  As a baby, I ate poi instead of baby food.  Poi is a Hawaiian dish made from the fermented root of the taro, which has been baked & pounded to a paste.  It’s basically purple goo and tastes bitter but super yummy with sugar.  Needless to say, I love taro!
