It was the first Ghanaian food festival that helped to showcase the culture of Ghana mainly through traditional food, performances and display of art, culture and dance. As with any culture, food is central to Ghanaian life regardless of where you are in the world. Chop bars can be found on every corner of Ghana’s towns and in some major cities abroad too, like London and New York.
From fufu to banku, gari fotor and the much talked about Ghana Jollof, everyone has a favourite dish and every region in Ghana has its own specialties.
The Chow Ghana Festival event which came off last Saturday and Sunday, June 10 and 11 respectively at the Venue Gh, located behind Tullow Oil, Dzorwulu, saw many patrons and chefs who graced the occasion whose idea is to create excitement around traditional foods which Ghanaians have grown up to love.
Chow Ghana Food Festival was also a platform to encourage art, talent and promote the Ghanaian culture. The organizer are hoping for a comeback through an annual event of similar nature to attract both locals and expatriates from all walks of life.
The First Ghanaian food festival was well captured and below is a playback of what you missed from the Chow Ghana Food Festival on Discover Gh, a television program aimed to showcase Ghana and its greatest treasures. Meet your host, Matilda Frimpong.
