Ia Ora Na,
Welcome to this new episode of our Pacific Toks, where I engage in active conversations with my guests to talk about the challenges our world is facing and seeing them through a Pacific lens. Today, I’m very pleased to welcome to the show Robert Oliver. Robert Oliver is a famous chef from New Zealand but he spent his youth in Fiji and Samoa where he probably got his passion for local ingredients but he’ll probably tell us more about it later.
Robert hosted the TV series Real Pasifik, which plays in more than 40 countries and is on its 75th rerun. He is Ambassador for Le Cordon Bleu, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands, and UNDP Pacific Advocate for Food, Sustainable Development and Wellbeing. And he’s the winner of several awards.
I have been very pleased to welcome him as a speaker for TEDxPapeete in 2016 and since then Robert is also the founder of “Pacific Food Revolution”, a show filled with Pacific heritage and humor that “uses the power of reality TV, radio, and social media to change people’s eating behaviour.”
