I bet we got you wondering & hungry to know more.
The power of our home grown Plantain is showcased in #PlantainFest19
Together with all stakeholders in the Agriculture sector and the food chain in Ghana, Plantain Festival under the theme “Plantain for The Nation” will provide an avenue for the general public to discover and taste an array of dishes made with plantain as the core ingredients. The cause provides a solid consumer base for the average plantain farmer annually as well as promote plantain farming.
Whether ripe or unripe, Plantain is one of the few foods that can be used at every stage of its life. The
leaves can be used for medicinal purposes and the fruits edible at all stages. There’s a lot of recipes with the base of plantain which are unknown to us Ghanaians and as such Plantain festival will promote an awareness/enlightenment campaign to unveil all other recipes or foods made from plantain.
The event will provide vendors the opportunity to be creative, innovative and entice the general public and Plantain enthusiast on the set date.
This exciting concept has been endorsed by many celebrities including KOD, Efya Odo, George Kwaning and International Chef Danie Inc who is seen in an endorsement video emphasizing the relevance of
such an event to learn more uses of our Ghanaian farm produce especially Plantain. Chef Danie has
made meals for celebrities including Opera, P.Diddy, Pharrel & American rap star 50 cent.
