…because Jollof Rice is BAE. I mean, what’s not to love about its fiery red and the complex smoky and satisfying flavours it holds within.
Yes, Happy World Jollof Rice Day.
World Jollof Rice Day is celebrated on the 22nd of August, across the world.
First celebrated in 2015, no one is sure of its exact origins but no one has an issue with it either. In fact, majority of people are thrilled that a day has been set aside to celebrate the almighty Jollof. Some have even began to push for a World Plantain Lovers Day but lets stick with Jollof for the minute.
Not yet on the United Nations list of International Days – Days currently observed by the UN as a result of resolutions, World Jollof Rice Day or International Jollof Rice Day as it might be referred to then is a day to celebrate Jollof Rice and its stories.
Come one, Come Jollof.
