Dishes and Diplomacy: King David Kalākaua at the Table
This presentation discusses the ways King David Kalākaua, the constitutional monarch of the Kingdom of Hawai`i, utilized culinary diplomacy at an 1890 ʻahaʻaina (banquet) to honor Rear-Admiral George Brown, of the United States Navy. I will talk about the venue, the invited guests, the table setting, the menu, the selection of dishes and libations, and the musical selections. Through this diplomatic dinner, the status and authority of Kalākaua is emphasized as he extends hospitality to his political friends and enemies.
