Cooking Demonstration: Tongan Food

Monday, July 12, 2021

Cook along at home, if you like, as Fusi Taaga of Tokemoana’s in Redwood City teaches us about the culture and food of Tonga.

The Kingdom of Tonga, neighboring Samoa and Fiji in the South Pacific, is made up of about 170 islands—most of them uninhabited. The Bay Area has the largest Tongan population in the entire state (and larger than most areas of the country)—but how well do you know the cuisine?

Fusi Taaga is from Tonga, and opened Tokemoana Foods to bring a taste of Polynesia to the Peninsula. Join us to learn more about Tonga, to try your hand at making Lu Sipi (lamb in taro leaves) and delicious yams in coconut milk.
