  • How did rukau get its name?

  • Taylor Eason

    To my knowledge, rukau is just a name for the taro leaf dish, originally from the Polynesian islands.

    Monica – wish I could help you but I don’t know much about the history of the taro root leaf. Good luck!

  • Fuimaono Tofa Lupo

    I’m sorry but the name is ‘Luau’ not rukau, it is also called ‘palusami’
    which is made of taro leaves wrapped as a ball with coconut cream, onions inside, foil or breadfruit leaf to cover then bake it in the oven, steam it or in a traditional island ‘umu’.
    Beautiful, yummy and healthy.

  • ‘Rukau’ is the cook Islands name for the taro leaf dish. Prepared the same way as Luau/Palusami (Samoan) or Lu/Lu sipi (Tongan).
