Bougna is a traditional feast dish of the
Kanak people of New Caledonia.
Bougna often contains taro, yam, sweet potato, banana, and pieces of either
chicken, fish, crab, prawns or lobster. The contents are wrapped in banana
leaves and are then buried to cook in a ground oven, which uses red-hot rocks
heated by fire. After about two hours of cooking, the banana leaves are
unearthed and unwrapped, and the contents are eaten.
