What do we eat?In Fiji we eat Crabs, Coconuts, Bananas, Fish, Curry and a favourite of mine is the Lovo. Firstly we dig a hole in the ground, about 3 feet deep and 5 feet wide. Then we place firewood and rocks in the pit and light a fire until the rocks are white hot. This process takes about 2 hours. After the meat , the taro and vegetables go over the rocks and go in. Then everything is covered with banana leaves and wet sacks. After about 2 to 3 hours everything is cooked. It is then unearthed and served.
