For our first weekend, we cooked food from Tahiti. The main dish that we prepared was Poisson Cru, a dish of raw tuna fish, coconut milk, lime juice, and vegetables. Many refer to Poisson Cru as the national dish of Tahiti. We used this recipe (http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Poisson-Cru-Tahitian-Salad-242084). It came out pretty good, but it was a little too salty.

For dessert, we made Po’e, a banana-based pudding. We used this recipe (http://www.lighthousetravel.net/Tahitian_Food.html).This definitely didn’t come out like pudding. It was some were between pudding and bread. I’m not sure where we went wrong. It still tasted good, even though we were texturally expecting something else.

Next weekend, we are going to travel to Japan via our taste buds.
