Chefs Leonid Vusilai and Kandy Tamagushiku inspecting crops on local farms
The impressive collaboration between Vanuatu’s Leo Vusilai of Sanma Agri-Food Trade Association (SAFTA) and K2’s Head Chef Kandy Tamagushiku will provide an all local catering team set to deliver award winning Pacific Island Cuisine for the Sustainable Islands Tourism Conference delegates in Santo later this month.
These caterers who are supported by Vanuatu Skills Partnership’s Farm to Table program, are passionate about working with local farmers. This means using local crops and produce to form the basis of all the meals. By doing so income earned from tourism is directed into local communities, while also minimizing imports and plastic packaging of food.
