Debunking the 5-second rule...
Here, our hosts were digging up food from the lovo feast that were burried in an underground oven lined with banana leaves and covered with hot stones. A lovo is a Fijian feast prepared for communal events and festivities. For our group, seafood and vegetables were wrapped in banana leaves are then placed on top of the heated stones and cooked approximately 2 hours. Steaming hot seafood, chicken, taro, and cassava were then laid out for us to enjoy by lamplight (the resort boasts "no carbon footprint" and I believe it!). The next day, we received an indepth tour of the garden that all of the resort's produce is from. This was certainly a feast for all of my senses!
