The days of the dispute between Nigerians and Ghanaians over who makes the best jollof rice are officially over.

Gambian jollof has been declared the best jollof West Africa has to offer, after defeating 15 other countries at the West African Food Festival.

The event was organised by the Association of Professional Chefs Nigeria in collaboration with the Federation of Tourism Associations of Nigeria (FTAN) and it stretched across six days that saw plenty indigenous meal exhibitions, master classes and food and wine tastings.

Gambia won against Nigeria, Ghana, Liberia and 12 other West African countries with its unique jollof recipe, which contains mustard, fish and unlike other jollof recipe, does not contain tomatoes.
