Samoa: Recipes and Cuisine

Samoan cuisine, like much of Samoan life, is enjoyed in a largely communal fashion. Families often gather together for a traditional umu firepit feast where pork is the favorite meat. Seafood and fish are also abundant and very popular. Coconuts are gathered from beaches and used for their meat and for coconut milk and cream. Taro root, bananas and breadfruit form a starchy foundation to the diet.
