Happy World Jollof Rice Day! Chosan is an independent producer of a range of 100% natural, organic drinks bursting with the flavours of hibiscus and superfruit, baobab. Here at Chosan, we are big fans of West Africa’s most famous dish. Our own name ‘Chosan’ means cultural heritage in Wolof, the language that the very name jollof rice is derived from. There is much debate about the origins of jollof rice and as the name comes from the Senegambia region we heartily stake our claim!
You wont believe it but at one point in my life I just stopped eating Jollof rice. I grew sick of it. Sick of eating it every time I attended a wedding, a christening, a 7 day and sick of eating it on Sunday or at Christmas, Boxing day, Easter, Easter Monday and the list goes on. As for the separate gravy that came with it...well, where do I start? I'm sorry but where do people get off with meat cubes and onions sitting at the bottom of the serving dish with oil floating around on top? It was like watching goldfish rise to the top of stagnant pond water when I put the spoon in to serve.
