Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa has launched a new main course menu’s for their award winning V restaurant this festive season featuring their new interactive dessert ‘Taste of Coconut’.

Chef de Cuisine Abhinesh Sharma said: “Fiji has a long association with the coconut so for our first dessert we wanted to pay homage to its origin in culture, cooking and daily life.”

He said coconuts are not only used in cooking and to rehydrate. The leaves and shells also have many uses in so many areas including fashion, agriculture and ceremonial.

“The aim of the dish is to tell a story, and this story is told by one of our knowledgeable kitchen or floor team as they walk you through the elements and prepare this beautiful artwork in front of you.

“This a one of a kind food experience to be enjoyed in Fiji!”

The new menu has been very popular since its launch last week.

“A part of that new menu is an interactive dessert we plate on the table in front of guests; it has proven to be a hit already,” he said.
