Exactly a year ago, I had a vision to 'Bring Nigerian Street Food To A Global Market' and proudly launched Tee's Food Corner at the 'African Food and Drink Takeover at Africa Utopia, Southbank. It was such an amazing feeling to have so many people from all different cultures and walks of life enjoying some of our delicious street food that I grew up eating. This year, due to popular demand, we are adding the beloved Jollof Rice and other equally delicious meals to our menu alongside our street food offerings.
West Africa Cooks is campaigning to make World Jollof Rice Day a United Nations International Day. Well World Jollof Rice Day has global reach, media interest and the public engaged. You may laugh but through popular foods you can start the conversation off with everyone and carry this through into the *next UN day which is talking about humanity, human rights and African people.
From Ghanaian street food to Ethiopian restaurants, African food is here and make its mark bigger every year. The foodie revolution continues with inspirational cook and author Patti Gyapomaa Sloley.
This is good news for those of us who are tired of African food remaining in the dark, lagging behind Indian and Chinese food. Here we speak to Patti about her entrepreneurial ventures.
