Hey, we are Rika & Ben

We are a way too sticky couple, that is discovering the unique islands of French Polynesia in the middle of the Pacific and while doing this, we learn about ourself every single day. Here we share our experiences, ideas and adventures.

Feel free to get in touch with us or just make your own thoughts and ideas out of everything you can find here. Maybe we’ll meet soon in French Polynesia 🙂

 

Sprouted Coconut Bread

 “Faraoa Uto”

 

The pa’umotu people (living in the Tuamotu Archipelago) live simply and the remoteness of the islands from Tahiti and villages means that sometimes not everyone has the opportunity to buy bread. But with a minimum of ingredients and a little bit of creativity, they are able to overcome this problem. From the Atoll of Makemo, Rika shares with us her recipe for one of the famous bread in the Tuamotu, the sprouted coconut bread or “Faraoa Uto” in Tahitian and “Faraoa Nounou” in Pa’umotu (The Tuamotu’s language).
