Cooking local, stimulating business

Robert Oliver is a world renowned New Zealand chef and TV presenter. He is author of two award-winning Pacific cook books, which were written with a vision of connecting the Pacific’s agriculture and tourism sectors using a ‘farm-to table’ approach. By stimulating local economies, this approach to local cuisine and agricultural products could become a key development tool for island states.
