Los Angeles magazine named The Grog Log, Intoxica! and Taboo Table as the best Polynesian drink guides in its August 2006 issue, and I couldn't agree more.
In The Grog Log, first published in 1998, Jeff "Beach Bum" Berry and Annene Kaye first reintroduced vintage Tiki mixed drink recipes, some of which had been kept highly secret or thought to be long-lost. He followed up in 2002 with Intoxica! and in 2005 with Taboo Table, a cook book of vintage Polynesian-inspired recipes. Los Angeles magazine comments, "In a series of meticulously researched cookbooks, Los Feliz filmmaker Jeff Berry has decoded the top-secret ingredients of legendary drinks and even some pupu platters."
Berry is working on a fourth volume in the series due in July of 2007 and will also be teaching a tiki drink mixology class at this year's Hukilau in Ft. Lauderdale.
