Jollof CookOff

The African Alliance of Rhode Island Youth Committee is hosting a Jollof Rice Competition on April 28, 2018. This events hosts restaurants and individuals from across West Africa to decide once and for all which country makes the best jollof! The events host two parts:

The Restaurant competition and the Individuals contest. Members of the community will be able to taste and enjoy jollof from all over West Africa and cast their vote for the best jollof in New England.

We encourage the community to come out for an event that is the first of its kind in New England and finally decide who claims bragging rights!
