Denarau, Fiji and flowers

The best of Fiji can be found in the islands, like here, and Denarau is usually just a 'stopover' (unless you play golf…). But it is convenient for day trips (sea and land), and scuba diving courses (they take you out to the islands from Denarau). For me, what I have enjoyed most are... the flowers!

Bye bye Fiji!

Fiji, from the Mamamuka to the Yasawa islands

An ode to blue...

When you enter the Yasawa Islands Group a worrier welcomes you, can you see him on the rock?

The best Italian Vegan fritters are...

… chestnut fritters! And you only need three ingredients: Italian chestnut flour (which is naturally sweet so you don't need to add sugar), sultana (optional, but traditional!) and oil for frying! These are full of protein, gluten free, and perfect for breakfast, or snack, hot or cold. I love them after a gym workout and the kids like to put them in their lunch boxes. They are very filling, plus they last a few days, if you don't eat them all at once!

Mix the chestnut flour with enough water to make a batter (same consistency as hot cakes), add the sultana.

 Drop full spoons of batter in the hot oil and fry on both sides until nice and brown.

Drain excess oil with kitchen paper
