Jollof Rice Competition With Prize Money £1000

By West Africa Cooks, 19 August, 2015

This is the biggest competition in the African domestic cooking scene. You have to enter. With the rise in African music in Afro-beats with the rise in African fashion in hot designs from our heritage we see a rise in African cooking. To inspire a nation and the world, the capital London gets its first ever Jollof rice competition.

Jollof rice is eaten and loved across West Africa and for the very first time this staple food is getting the respect and appreciation it justly deserves. Every West African community believes that they make the best version of the rice dish which originates from Senegal.

We think this rice dish plays a vital role in the large West African community of London so we are delighted to put up £1,000 for this food competition says Sundjata Keita. West Africa Cooks will be one of three judges of this competition. It is free to take part in this competition so email now for your application form.
