How To Cook Food Underground - A FUN WAY TO COOK



This is a short video showing how Fijian's construct their 'Lovo', which is their way of cooking food like chicken, pork, beef and fish underground. This involves heating up large stones until they become white hot, and then laying the meat which is wrapped up in coconut or banana leaves and left under the ground for hours. This method is similar to the 'hangi' which is used in New Zealand, or the 'Hawaiian Underground Oven'.
