Fiji, what a destination!
Filled not only with beautiful beaches and stunning weather, but also a vibrant culture. Beaming smiles greet you and the welcome mat is well and truly rolled out.
Fijian culture is a real mix with not only Melanesian, Polynesian backgrounds but also Chinese, Indian, European and South pacific influences.
On this trip I explore the fusion of Fijian culture with Indian. It has been a 130-year relationship and has changed the way most locals are eating at home. That is what I am tasting on my journey thus far.
What I have identified and loved the most about Fijian culture has been the importance of family. What better way for a family to celebrate together than through amazing food cooked traditionally in the Lovo; sweet potatoes, taro, fish…yum!
I have to say I was impressed by the delicious speciality dishes too like the Kokoda, plus enjoyed some relaxation thanks to a cracker drop called Kava.
Fiji, I will be definitely be coming back for more! – Brett McGregor
