JAMIE OLIVER MURDERED JOLLOF RICE! #JollofGate
Ha ha ha....I was minding my business jejely on twitter when a picture floated across my TL...Ki le leyi, I asked myself. It looked like a plate of food sha, make I click. Jamie made Jollof...this should be good! I clicked on the link and it took me to his website where the recipe was...I read it and I'm glad he said this was HIS version of Jollof rice, but I don't think many people really got that memo-they were really upset! I'm looking at the picture and shaking my head, Jollof Rice does not really need all that senrenren on it...see lime, and big balls of pepper. Nah, I would not readily call that jollof as I know it.
The thing about jollof rice is this: it is personal and jollof lovers get very very emotional about it. jollof rice is king and many felt Jamie murdered the thing. Thank God he didn't say "Nigerian Jollof Rice"so the backlash wasn't much...It's the Ghanaians vs Jamie Oliver.
Jamie Oliver, if you ever read this, I'd like to share with you my Nigerian Party Jollof Rice Recipe, one of a kind recipe with testimonies...if you give it a try, you will never remix jollof again. CLICK HERE to see my Party Jollof Rice Recipe.
Some of these comments blow my mind....LOL. People get so emotional about jollof rice. How does Jollof Rice make you feel? Have you seen the Jollof Banner on the side of my blog? he he he
