Runsewe to Open Chef Challenge at the Akwaaba ATM


The head of Culture in Nigeria, Otunba Segun Runsewe the D.G of National Council of Arts and Culture will declare the chef challenge open at the 2017 Akwaaba African Travel Market.

As the Jollof rice challenge draws nearer, so is an increase in buzz and enthusiasm amongst the competing countries including Ghana, Gambia, Nigeria and Senegal.

The event organized by Akwaaba African Travel Market with the sole aim of promoting culinary tourism in Africa, already has the Chefs set and more than ready to hit the scene.

Over the weekend, Africa was thrilled with the Jollof rice challenge organized by the Ghanaian Tourism Authority (GTA) at Legon Botanical Garden. The competition, which featured Ghana, Gambia, Nigeria and Senegal, formed part of the “See Ghana, Eat Ghana, Wear Ghana, and Feel Ghana” campaign being championed by the GTA, under the auspices of the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts to promote local tourism on a global scale. It also served as a selection process for the Ghana Chef Association to choose the 5 chef coming to Lagos for the Akwaaba event.

The culinary event is aimed at promoting tourism in Nigeria by showcasing the best of Nigeria to an international audience.

The tourism event will be hosting chefs from Ghana, Gambia and Nigeria to compete for Jollof rice challenge, 36 states in Nigeria compete for the best main meal and a group of Nigerian chefs compete for the best prepared rice in varieties.

These activities were created purposely to bring out the best in West Africa in terms of rice production and promoting the outlook of culinary tourism and local delicacies to foreigners thereby promoting indigenous hospitality and style.

Akwaaba African Travel market introduced the Chef Challenge and Food Expo on the hospitality day to foster local food experiences amongst travelers and to promote culinary tourism and entertainment.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
