New Year's Eve Fireworks on Tanna

If you are in Tanna on New Year's Eve and want to welcome 2014 with us you are very welcomed, we are inaugurating our first ever fireworks from our newly created rockpools (ipernity.com/doc/…537545).

It's free for all, we hope this will become an ever larger spectacle for local people as well as for those visiting our home.

Cheers,

John

Do you really need fireworks when you have an active Volcano!

Unity Airlines is running an over-night volcano tour on 31 December with guests staying at Tanna Evergreen Resort, I'm sure they'll be thrilled to have the double show, one by mountain, one by sea. I think its a great idea John.

Teasers! I'm with P&L, how wonderful it would be to spend more time there, and to see in New Year on Tanna would be heaven. Plenty of pics thanks John, so we can live vicariously.

Yes Air Taxi has generously schedule their pilot roster to ensure that passionate chef Sebastien "Ze Flying Chef" (http://airtaxivanuatu.com/the-air-taxi-crew/) is at the resort on the 24th in order to coordinate the Resort Xmas Lunch of the 25th. Sebastien has been instrumental in the menu development and kitchen improvements over the past 12 months.

Seb's Xmas Menu is:

Efate river prawn cocktail.

Italian cured Parma ham & French gherkins.

Selection of French pates.

Baltic smoked salmon served with home made blinis and relish.

Traditional smoked Christmas ham.

Mediterranean fusion roasted turkey

&

Creamy herb mash, roasted chestnuts and cranberry jam.

Warm Tanna salad of lettuce, bacon, roasted onions, cheese & croutons.

Selection of International Cheeses.

Marinated Tanna Mango served with vanilla sorbet.

I have the tedious task of selecting & tasting the wines to accompany the dishes...someone has to do the tough stuff!.
