International Dinner Project: Samoa (Ryan’s choice)


A big family affair tonight – Samoan stylz!

Saturday, 3 December 2011

Another successful international night. We invited our Samoa experts (my brother Greg,and sister-in-law Tina) over for authenticity, and some Samoan language.
Surprise of surprises Ryan was up for it tonight – he had some Oka, and gave a thumbs up (literally) to the Raw fish in particular.
Taisi Moa was great! Kumara, banana and coconut go great together.
Pre-dessert Masi Popo disappeared and was especially popular with all the boys – from 24 biscuits we only had 6 left at the end.
And the panikeke disappeared too with the resident experts having double helpings (and a triple helping of the oka – not naming anyone….)
Is really great to see the boys trying new food, without any coaxing now – and that’s what international night was all about…
Tonight’s menu:
