In the kitchen
Although oranges are not a typical Polynesian fruit, they are an integral part of life in Punaauia and on the island of Tahiti. The orange has become the symbol of Punaauia, a fruit that testifies to the strong bond between the people of this commune and their Fenua.
Last week, Chefs de Tahiti brought you its recipe for Orange Cake, highlighting the sweet and tangy flavors of this fruit. It’s a dish that delights the taste buds and reminds us that oranges can be cooked in a thousand and one ways. Orange is an endless source of inspiration, and we can’t wait to see your delicious creations.
In the end, the Orange Festival in Punaauia is much more than just a fruit harvest. It’s a warm tribute to the generous nature of the island of Tahiti, celebrating the strength and courage of the men of Punaauia. This tradition, which has spanned generations, has become a genuine culinary and cultural experience that unites us all. Long live the Orange Festival, symbol of Punaauia and pride of the island of Tahiti!
