The Gambia entices tourists with food fair
The Gambia is set to entice tourists and visitors to the country with its food fair.
This will help compensate those that missed the opportunity of spending the new year holiday in The Gambia.
This is yet another reason to visit the smiling coast of West Africa this new year.
Unarguably, the most peaceful country in Africa, The Gambia invites lovers of food and tourists alike to her food and beverage festival this year.
The two-day event holding from February 26-27, 2016 at Green Mamba Gardens/Jakarlo Bar and Restaurant will feature musical jamboree (including contemporary and classical), live entertainment with bonfire, and competitions such as: wrestling, eating and pool.
The festival will showcase various local dishes including but not restricted to: Mbahal, Benachin, Fufu Soup, Lamb afra – off the grill, Pork afra – off the grill, Yassa kobo, Yassa Nganar, Ebbeh, and Nyambeh Nyebbeh.
Also, renowned Gambian chefs and other locals will showcase their signature dishes and brand themselves in the process to become permanent representatives in the event, which The Gambia Tourism Board is promoting as a major event in the tourism calendar of The Gambia.
The organisers also noted that the two days festival would provide families, friends, loved ones, and tourists the opportunity to socialize and experience the variety of Gambian gastronomy along with the different international cuisine of the various restaurants in Banjul.
