Theme: Let’s Talk All Things Food; Focus: A Wedding Menu

We all know that great food is one of the most important part of any event. Be it a wedding or some other kind of event. As a Nigerian, I know that I cannot go to a Nigerian party without eating the jollof rice and small chops. Its not that there is no rice in my house but party jollof hits different. Lol. There are many things that go into having great food at a party but the first point I am going to be discussing today is the menu itself. The menu is very important especially if you are catering to a wide range of diverse guests. Most weddings these days are trying to be inclusive in their menu by including low-calorie dishes for their older guests, gluten-free dishes for their selective guests and a wide range of inter-continental dishes for their upper-class elitist guests. But most Nigerians don’t care. Lol. In fact they don’t want you to eat at their wedding. Drink one malt and go. But if you really want your guests to have a good time, keep reading. Most Nigerian parties have three course meals. So I am going to be giving us examples of Three courses that can be served at a Nigerian wedding.
