Come Chop Bellefull: A Taste of Nigeria

The iconic dishes, must-visit markets, and unforgettable flavors

In collaboration with

The Centenary Project
"Food in any culture is never just about filling stomachs. It is about love affairs and pleasure and passion; about textures and aroma; about cultural identity"- Yẹ́misí Aríbisálà
"Many Nigerians prefer the taste of food prepared with pots and firewood. The meals gain a unique flavour by the smoke emitting from the firewood."- The Centenary Project
"There are scientific claims that fingers have powerful nerve receptors linked to the digestive system so handling your food releases digestive juices and enzymes that enhances the meal."- Yẹ́misí Aríbisálà

The party don't start til jollof walks in

The ultimate dish for any social occasion

"The most popular lunch staples include rice (jollof or fried or white or ọ̀fadà) with a choice of soup or stew, and fried plantain or beans, or both. Or you can have boiled yam with eggs — a meal that works for either breakfast, lunch, or dinner."- Kọ́la Túbọ̀sún
"Nigerians love meat. For many, no meal is complete if it doesn't include some kind of meat, whether cow, chicken or bushmeat."- The Centenary Project
