Tumunu - Bulletin Board of the Cook Islands

Last update: February 28 2015
This is a free, moderated service for Cook Islanders or others to post notices and to discuss subjects of relevance to the Cook Islands. Publication is at the whim and prejudices of the Brewmaster. Maori must be accompanied by an English translation. On any contentious or personal matter you will need to include your e-mail address. No messages will be published if received in capitals only or in lower case letters only or in abbreviated 'text speak'. Material will be edited if overlong, ungrammatical or boring. Postings will be kept until deemed no longer current (usually 30 days). E-mail

Brewmaster: Please note that we will not publish messages which are not punctuated or those written in 'stream-of-consciousness' style with phrases separated only by a series of full stops. They take too much time to sub-edit and render into English. Also, note the guidelines above concerning Maori and capital letters.

I have such postcards from 197 different countries up to now. Unfortunately I don't have such a postcard from the Cook Islands. Is there a possibility to receive a postcard from you? Or, do you know anybody whom I can contact to be realise my wish? The postcard can be used. It does not have to be addressed to me. My contact data:

Can I please just ask is Kanaka the white looking bread dish that is baked in the oven? I remember being with my nana and eating all our Island goodness and am trying to get back into cooking our traditional dishes. If anyone has a recipe or basic rundown on how to make this dish I will be so grateful. Thank you in advance. Christine W.
