Poke Bowls. What is poke (pronounced “POH-keh”)? The word poke is a Hawaiian word meaning “to cut or slice” raw, marinated fish. The dish is thought to have originated in pre-colonial Polynesia, but the poke bowl as we know it today didn’t rise in popularity until the 1970s.
The star of every poke bowl is the fish, usually tuna, but Tofu is also a favorite among poke lovers. Are you curious about trying to poke for the first time? Do you already consider yourself a connoisseur of all things poke? Regardless of your current poke status, there are a few things you should know about your next poke bowl.
While studies have proven that the color and shape of our dinnerware can affect our relationship with food, there could be a more pressing concern lurking in your dinnerware.
