African Pop-Up Festival 2022

Sofrito Lovers,

African food is not monolithic!  Africa is a continent of myriad and incredible cuisines, textures, and flavors.  One cannot judge African cuisine by fufu alone (stupid TikTok), you must sample it all, and what better place can you savor the flavors of this continent, than the African Pop-Up Festival in Brooklyn?

I am not going to over sell this, I'm just going to say that it's incredible-that's all.  With representation from Nigeria, Ethiopia, Ghana, and a slew of other countries, this Pop-Up has spectacular FOOD and wonderful shopping.  The sights, smells, and flavors of West, East, and Sub-Saharan Africa permeate the streets when the Pop-Up pops up and your mouth can't help but salivate. Jollof rice, stewed goat, plantains, fufu, soups, chicken, stews, enjera, and tasty vegetables galore!

I've said enough; I said I wouldn't oversell.  I hope to see you there-I'll buy you some pounded yam.

Go taste for yourself!  ¬°Buen Provecho!
