Cook-cum-pastry chef Luisa Vamarasi is using the Tanoa Salon Culinaire 2015 to advocate awareness against cancer during Pinktober.

Pinktober falls on October and is very special as girls, women, and men band together in the battle against breast cancer.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Ms Vamarasi of Hapmak, Rotuma, thanked Tanoa Group for organising an inspiring event where she baked a celebration cake to mark Pinktober in two days.

“This is the first time for me to come up with this cake since the Tanoa Group is a major sponsor for Pinktober and in every way, I always fight against cancer,” said the 31-year-old.

“The pink ribbon is the sign of cancer awareness, green is for peace, white is for prosperity and I have come up with the colour black to show that women and men need to stand up, have their medical checks and in that way we can help in the fight against breast cancer.

“I love working for Tanoa because they have given us everything. One thing that I like is they have given us this wonderful opportunity to showcase the talents we have.”

Two Samoan chefs, Filo Tupo, 31, and Alofagia Sone from Tanoa Tusitala Hotel in Apia, are part of the event.

“This is a good way to meet up with colleagues of ours in Fiji and compete,” he said.

Mr Tupo said this exercise would increase their knowledge and would lead to better services.

The duo won the Samoan national competition early this year.
