“The first book by Robert Oliver Me’a Kai was a surprising, yet easy decision . It received the most important award of all for setting a new level for cookbooks. It showed how one cookbook could be very ambitious, and try to have an impact on society, for health, food culture, and local economy”
Dr. Asif CHIDA , Inclusive Growth and Private Sector, Regional Specialist UNDP Pacific Centre:
