The annual GTCO Food and Drink Festival is back for the seventh year; this time, it has many exciting attractions. Since its maiden edition in 2016, the food fair has gathered food enthusiasts in one venue to explore different delicacies. Set against the beautiful backdrop of Victoria Island, the event, which started as a two-day event, has now expanded into a three-day event. Just imagine three days of exploring food from across the continent of Africa. The Masterclasses over the years have been nothing short of entertaining and informative, and this year’s promises to be even more exciting. For one, they have the kid’s baking class, which provides kids and up-and-coming cooks a chance to learn about the delights of baking. In anticipation of this year’s event, we journey through the previous Food and Drink Festivals and explore what to expect this year. Check it out on pages 8 to 10.
