In exactly three weeks’ time on the 22nd of August 2018 it’ll be World Jollof Rice Day, a culinary festival in London celebrating everything Jollof.
Everyone claims their Jollof rice is the best and here at Healthy West African we’ve sampled various Jollof rice from different parts of West Africa. We’re even aware of the Jollof rivalry which has even resulted in Jollof Wars and the saga that became #Jollofgate following displeasure at Jamie Oliver’s version of Jollof rice!
So what is Jollof and why is it king of West African cuisine? Here’s a video explaining Jollof and highlighting the fact that the variations in Jollof reflect the rich variety in West African cuisine with each country putting its signature twist on this popular dish.
