Oceanian Food Recipes by Country

What are Oceanian food recipes? In my definition they are originating from Australia, New Zealand, New Guinea and almost all islands in Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia. The long coast lines have made seafood a natural part of all these cuisines. Indigenous and colonial influences make up the historical basis for their cuisines. Later additions have many times come from emmigrational waves originating in Asia and Europe.

Before Colonisation
This entire region had indigenous populations, the aboriginals of Australia separate themselves since they did not form agrarian societies. They lived from what the land had to give. The populations on New Zealand and on the other Pacific islands are believed to have originated from a migratory wave from Southeast Asia, except the Papuans of New Guinea who came. They show big similarities with sweet potatoes, taro and yam grown in agricultural societies. Fishing, gathering and hunting supplemented the fare. The sweet potato with its South American origin has created theories about connections with another sub-continent. The arrival of European colonizers, In New Zealand and Australia from Great Britain, would change Oceanian food recipes forever.
