If you’ve not heard about the African food revolution currently taking over the food industry, where have you been?
We are big supporters of the amazing talents of chefs majoring in food from across the continent, like Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen, Jason’s Little Kitchen and My African Hob.Taking the movement up a couple of notches, is the launch of Africa Food Week, London, an event with the aim of celebrating the African food experience in London and exploring the role of technology in the discovery, branding and development of African food businesses.
Between 20-24 March 2018, a packed programme of panel discussions, pop-up dining experiences and opportunities to take part in food business pitches, will be taking place at the Impact Hub in London’s Kings Cross. If you are a foodie specialising in African cuisine, this is the place to be.
