Independence Day Feast

A True PNG Independence Feast

More than 30 people living with disabilities and staff of the Cheshire Homes in Hohola gathered for an Independence Day feast prepared by the volunteers.

In true PNG style, all four dishes featured coconuts.

Representing the Highlands region, Willie Koi prepared a Western Highlands Mumu, cooking a whole pig marinated in ginger, garlic, onion, carrots and green fern in coconut milk.

For the Momase region, Michelle Alung-Megiarni and Josephine Barrum prepared Nangu, a sago dish served with smoked fish and greens in coconut milk.
