Mr Joeli Vakabua (Fiji Biosecurity) shows a cow's passportAfter an interesting one week tour-de-force in Italy and Europe with a delegation from Biosecurity Authority of Fiji, we are glad to announce that our import permit is now including a lot of more of Italian fresh genuine products. Most of you know that it took us years to have the initial permits for a small seletion of cheeses and smallgoods. This, from a Fiji biosecurity point of view, is more than understandable. The fear for non-compatible products for Fiji's fragile eco-system is great. It was a fortunate occasion to be able to accompany the delegation to our Italian suppliers farms and production plants, a real interesting experience that demonstrated the high quality, seriousness and respect for the normatives and the environment of our suppliers to the delegation from Fiji. Now that local authorities know exactly how genuine and perfectly safe our products are, we are glad to introduce to Fiji...

Flavio's Italian Shop in Nadi - Fiji's most original shopping experienceFlavio's Italian shop is a really dynamic environment. We're loud and passionate, we change and we are impulsive. We like International Milan and Ferrari (I know is not going well this year, don't mention it), we love who we are, we feel what we do and where we do it. We like to think of our Nadi shop like a little Italy in Fiji... all concentrated in a single room. Believe me when I say, this Fiji store is a shopping experience on its own!
But since Fiji is not that small a place, for all of those who cannot enjoy Flavio's "shopping experience" in Nadi, we have developped an online system to allow you to understand our products in detail... did I mention it gives you the prices too?
One of our price listsOur system is so easy that all you need is an internet connection and an email address. We're trying our best to make this as convenient and environmentally friendly as possible. We're publishing our price lists and we only send updates online.

We do still receive emails requesting copies of our price lists via email or fax, so we've decide to treat this post as a little "user manual" for both our new and long-term customers to give you the feel of and understand the "Flavio's Italian Shopping experience". Also, if while we're out sourcing authenitc Italian products for you, we might not be able to answer your personal queries immetiately, so plase log on to our "price list area"...all the info you're looking for might already be there.

Caprese SaladWith the arrival of Mozzarella cheese in our store it seemed right to share one of the simpliest and tastiest salad from the mediterranean tradition. I am talking about the famous Caprese Salad (or Insalata Caprese like we say in Italy). In this biref article I'd like to tell you not only how to prepare this Italian dish but also share its history and some facts about it.

CapriFirst of all the Caprese Salad takes its name from the island of Capri in the Campagna region (south of Italy). It is not clear excatly when it was invented but it became famous in the 1950s. The tradition tells that a real Insalata Caprese is made of cow's milk Mozzarella, tomatoes, olive oil and oregano but in most of the other Italian regions you might find it garnished with basil leaves. If you're familiar with a Caprese Salad garnished with balsamic vinegar, do not be mistaken as this is an American variant to the original recipe. In Fiji you can prepare a perfect Italian Caprese Salad from ingredients you'll find at Flavio's Italian Shop or at Va Bene store in Suva... and here's how to do it:

Pizza alla romanaBeing Italians living in Fiji we've always complained about the lack of real Italian pizza.
A real Italian pizza is hard to find if you don't have authentic Italian ingredients. Ok, you can use cheddar cheese instead of mozzarella or tomato sauce (ketchup) instead of Italian tomato puree but once you have had the chance to try a pizza in Italy, or a pizza made with Italian ingredients, you will realize that is the first REAL pizza you've ever had.
Now there is no need to fly to Naples to taste a genuine Italian Pizza. Thanks to the range of Italian ingredients you can find at Flavio's Italian Shop, even you can make an Italian Pizza with a capital "P" that will surspise your friends and loved ones and will make them ask for more. Just follow the recipes below for thin base traditional pizzas or a thick base sicilian style pizza with the right authentic Italian ingredients from our shop (marked with an "*") and your success is guaranteed.
