The Gambia won the contest against fifteen other countries in an event hosted by the Association of Professional Chefs Nigeria in collaboration with the Federation of Tourism Associations of Nigeria (FTAN) and sponsored by Maggi Nigeria Plc.

The purpose of the West African Food Festival is to showcase the rich and diverse culinary cultures of West Africa. The festival ran from Wednesday, August 9, to Monday, August 14, 2023.

Indigenous meal exhibitions, city tours, master classes, contests, and performances by the people of the participating nations were among the attractions of the six-day convention. At the event, there were eight competitions, four master classes, and food and wine tastings.

Many Nigerians online appear to be disappointed by the Gambians’ victory, although it’s no surprise that they did. Gambia’s victory in numerous Jollof rice competitions can be attributed to its unique cooking style, which occasionally omits tomatoes. Their Jollof rice recipe features a delightful combination of mustard, fish, and various seasonings, setting it apart from the rest.
