October 20, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Global kitchen

Generously Sponsored by the Irish Food Writers Guild, The Model Sligo and Hawthorn Hill Farm North Roscomon…

All Around the World people from a few different countries have built a myth around a particular meal called “jollof rice” originally “wollof rice”. Born from Senegal and spread to many West African countries and now there is an “English” Jollof rice, we will bring all those tastes to our table this October in a grand Sligo War of jollof rice with a few voluntary judges and votes from all attending. At the end the 3 most preferred will host our Christmas dinner 2018. Jollof rice from Senegal (covering for Niger, Gambia, Guinea, Burkina Faso) Nigeria, Cameroon, Ghana maybe England and more. The story around thee meal will be told accompanied by music from these countries. The generous donation of Lamb and Goat from Hawthorn Hill Farm will be served as one accompaniment with other food items. Tell every food lover you know, it will be a feast+a little rice to taste!
