Every culture can be defined by their cuisine, and a great way to remember where you have travelled is to be able to re-create those memories, at home in your own kitchen. Papua New Guinea food is distinctive in its use of fresh fruits and vegetables and in particular sweet potatoes, taro and coconut.

You’ll have the opportunity to learn more about the cuisine of Papua New Guinea when you arrive at the Masurina Lodge. As a group, you’ll be able to assist in the preparation of a traditional clay pot dish, which will consist of local fresh produce. Whilst that is cooking away you will have time to relax and enjoy the Lodge, which was the first hotel to be built in Alotau. You can visit the small, but unique WWII private memorabilia collection, purchase a drink at the bar, or just have a refreshing dip in the pool.
When your clay pot luncheon is ready, you’ll be able to sit down and enjoy the fruits of your labour. With a full tummy you’ll make your way back to the ship, with inspiration and the recipe in hand.
