This is the biggest and best competition in the African and Caribbean domestic cooking scene. You have to enter. With the rise in African and Caribbean art, music and fashion we see a rise in African and Caribbean street food stalls, supperclubs and cooking recipes. To inspire a nation and the world, the capital London gets its second ever Jollof rice competition and much more. Here is what is happening we have a prize money pool of £6,000 which is for eight competitions. It will be equally shared. There will be at least 3 runner-up cash prizes per competition.
Monday August 22nd is World Jollof Rice Day. Mark the date down in your African diary – August 22nd, use the hashtag #worldjollofriceday; use the hashtag #jollofgate for outraged comments and jokes; use #jollofricematters for social commentary; use #jollofwars for competition between nations on social media. Cook, eat and share jollof all day.
Thinking of writing a book? Well if you can cook African, Caribbean or Southern food here are three reasons why you should start to write down, document and collect your recipes.
