HECO Electric Kitchen

Welcome to the Electric Kitchen

Discover the joy of cooking with community-shared recipes.

In 1926, Hawaiian Electric Company started its Home Services Department, and began demonstrating the benefits and uses of electrical appliances to residents of Hawaii in the auditorium of Hawaiian Electric's Historic King Street building.

In 1995, the cooking program started airing as a cooking show for television audiences. The last televised program aired on August 28, 2005, but we maintain our "food connection" with the community through the publication of recipes in our monthly newsletter Hookui, a weekly column in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser food section and here on our website.

Or, you may purchase the  “A Hundred Years of Island Cooking” (PDF) recipe book.
