TRÔOFÊ Festival – 2nd Edition for 2015

Trôofê festival is a gastronomic day showcasing African soups.


It was first organized in 2011 in Accra by Edwige EPPROMO (Mrs.) a Côte d’Ivoire national. In Agni and agni dialects (ethnic groups from Côte d’Ivoire), Trôofê means ’’tasty soups’’.

For four years, Trôofê has been gathering the African and European community in Accra.

For African restaurant owners, Trôofê aims at valuing African dishes. This is an opportunity for all lovers of the African gastronomy to tickle the palate.

Participants are invited to play traditional games such as Oware, Ludo, and Draughts.

A Culinary competition between young women aged 20 to 25  from different countries is organized in this regards and winners are awarded.

Restaurants like Chez Clarisse Mama Africa, Tante Marie etc. will also have stands on the event ground where they get to use the opportunity to bring their flavors to Trôofê patrons.

The Trôofê village is the platform for African artists to perform and make participants enjoy the depths of African traditions. As such,  there will be a Zouglou live show with artists coming straight from Cote d’ivoire. Ghanaian Highlife great Nana Fynn will also grace the event with moving performances of big hits such as "Odo Handkerchief" and "Menkoa".

TRÔOFÊ always climaxes with a befitting dancing dubbed ‘’Bal Poussière‘’ (Dust Dancing) immersing us in vintage music from the deepest Africa
