How Pariva inspired PNG’s newest fast food restaurant

For those who don’t, it’s the local dish made from three ingredients – sago, ripe banana and coconut cream.

Food plays a big part in the life of a chef, so for Chef Louis Efi, it was this very simple dish.

Firstly, Pariva landed him his dream job – to be a private chef, which he was, for at least four years with the American Embassy.

He was competing in a cook-off with six other local experienced head chefs for the position.
