All over the country, people walk along the streets grabbing mouthwatering dishes, chewing away and doing their work
A general interest online newspaper, Newspread, which is published by NT News Ltd is set to host a street cooking competition – the first of its kind in Nigeria.
The competition tagged Sabi Chef is a national event scheduled to be held in Lagos state towards the end of December.
Speaking on behalf of the organisers of the show, through a statement signed by the Editor-in-chief of Newspread.ng, Uche Nnadozie, NT News Ltd said Sabi Chef is geared towards celebrating the diverse culinary tastes of the country.
“Our show is for the people. It is a pan-Nigerian event that will catalyze into a festival of foods, not just a single dish or item. Ours is also a platform to elevate street ingenuity, creativity, showcase culinary enthusiasts and promote our cultural heritage in a way never seen before.
“Our people love food, we also love to celebrate. All over the country, people walk along the streets grabbing mouthwatering dishes, chewing away and doing their work,” the statement reads.
“We don’t want these chefs who brave the odds to provide opportunity for busy people to eat to lose out in better skill honing or providing a podium for their recognition.
“We also want better working tools for them. Better hygiene, and the selling of tourism in our country through our deep culinary choices.”
Nnadozie said the winners of the show will go home with millions of naira worth of prizes, and benefit from orchestrated global recognition.
The statement urged interested participants and vendors to visit www.sabichef.com for further details.
