About Veronica’s recipes

Veronica’s menu brings together a symphony of flavours for you to enjoy. It is rare to find recipes from Papua New Guinea where cooking is passed down from mothers to daughters through practise and memory. These dishes are sure to delight you and your Feast guests. Plantain, taro, cassava and coconut feature along with lemongrass and chilli, these recipes bring you the traditional flavours of the East Sepik Province in northern Papua New Guinea. Just sit back, relax, and imagine you are feasting under a coconut tree on the beach.
