Top cooking talent drawn to Niue’s food festival

Some of the region’s food and beverage experts, writers and top chefs have converged on Niue this week as the island kicks off its inaugural food festival.

Kai Niue is part of the government strategy to boost tourism.

Travel and cuisine writer Alexia Santamaria and Auckland University of Technology’s

Lisa Sadaraka will give advice to food enthusiasts and business owners alike.

Celebrity chefs attending include the award winning author and TV host Robert Oliver; Samoan Michael Meredith and Tongan Alex Kaihea.

Organiser Felicity Bollen says it was important to bring people with knowledge and links to the Pacific.

“I just thought it would be wonderful if we could bring these three incredibly talented but quite different chefs to Niue for them to be able to share with us how we could contemporise our local food and make better use of our local food. This is part of the bigger food security question the Pacific as a region is facing around reducing our import substitutions.”

Felicity Bollen from Niue’s Chamber of Commerce.
