Fijian Lovo Recipe

Traditional Fijian Lovo Dinner
In Fiji, the traditional way of cooking your meals was cooking them underground oven. This method of cooking is called a lovo. Today, lovo feasts are saved for for special occasions in the village and are regularly served at resorts to share a little bit of Fijian culture with travelers. In a lovo, all the food is prepared then placed in an underground oven and slow cooked for hours. The tradition is much like the New Zealand "Hangi" and is Fiji's version of barbecue.
