Last weekend True Pacific ambassador Robert Oliver tantalised the taste buds of the many who sampled his inspired creations in a live food show at the Pacific Showcase.
In an all-day celebration of Pacific Cuisine, Oliver delighted the audience by providing a few of his food creations, including Sashimi Samoa, Ota Ika and Ice Kofi, using quality Pacific products that are part of the True Pacific brand.
The Pacific Showcase is a free admission event, operating on Saturdays from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm at The Cloud on Auckland’s Queens Wharf on 16 February, 2nd and 9th March.
