THE Fiji Beach Resort and Spa hopes to showcase local ingredients including spices, meats and produce at its first ever Festival of Food at Denarau today.

Executive chef Clinton Webber said the event which begins this afternoon will show overseas guests the wide range of ingredients available in Fiji. "Fiji has a lot to offer in terms of very high quality and fresh produce and spices. And this event will bring together local and overseas producers under one banner," he said.

Mr Webber said the festival would also be used to inform guests of the types of fresh ingredients the resort used at its restaurants. "For example, we use nothing but fresh produce from Joes Farm, the freshest and best spices from Fiji Spice Garden in Wainadoi and crabs from the Fiji Mud Crab Farm in Navua."

The Hilton chef said the festival would be used to highlight Fiji as a food destination to international travellers.

"Fiji is renowned as a great holiday destination with great beaches and for having the friendliest people on earth but I believe that Fiji also has the potential of being a food destination as well."
