Real Pasifik - Series Two, Episode One

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2014

This series sees Kiwi-born chef Robert Oliver roving the Pacific, exploring local food culture, and looking to inspire tourist resorts to include indigenous cuisine traditions in their offerings. This opening episode of the second series sees Oliver return to where he grew up: Fiji. In Ra Province he buys local and goes bush (cress and prawns) and sea shopping (reef octopus and seaweed), to help Volivoli Beach Resort upgrade its menu from backpacker fare to upmarket local delicacies. The series was inspired by Oliver’s award-winning book Me’a Kai.

...amazingly over 70% of food for tourists is imported. Locals are losing income, agriculture is suffering, and tourists are missing out on one of the world’s great cuisines. Robert wants to change that.
– From the show's introduction
