- Government through the tourism ministry has come up with the maiden Jollof Challenge
- This challenge will see chefs from around West Africa display their skills on August 26
The Ghana-Naija Jollof challenge sets out to be one of an intense warfare as the ministry of tourism has given the golden opportunity for cooks across West Africa to display their culinary skills.
This event, which takes place on the 26th of August forms part of the ministry's plans to create a special awareness for made-in-Ghana cousines mainly through the use of one of the favourite dishes of Ghanaians - Jollof rice.
Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the tourism authority, Akwasi Agyeman, reveals that "the cooking competition will bring together chefs from Ghana, Nigeria, Senegal, the Gambia and several local caterers to see who has the best Jollof".
