After 8 days in Samoa I wasn't short of inspiration. Samoan flavours...coconut, banana, taro, coconut... Tried to liven the food up a little and hopefully I haven't basterdised traditional Samoan cuisine too much. A special thanks to Simolo from the village of Malie for introducing me to Samoan culture and food.
