The foods, drinks, markets, exhibitions and master classes (not B. Sc) and a whole lot more, all had us swimming in a pool of excitement at the fair.

The event, so far, covered not just food and drinks but fun, fun and fun. I mean, there's a lot of fun activities to go round for everyone.
Let's start with the food part of the fun. You know how those hormones in your system get all so excited at the sight and aroma of food. Well, that's a good place to start the fair, with all kinds of food around that, you'd even run out of ideas and choices to pick.
Asides from the variety of foods available to pick and buy from, we got to taste other delicacies. Thanks to our experienced chefs, some of us who haven't travelled outside the continent now have an idea of what some Non-African food taste like.
And yeah, did I forget to mention, not only did we have lots of food everywhere, there were equally lots of people. So, there was no getting bored at all. I mean, even if you aren't interested in food, you'll definitely be interested in people of all kinds.
How do I even describe the exhibitions, from the farmers market to the food exhibitions?
There was literally everything that spells or fit into the word food present there, from their raw state to the finished product state. Livestock, vegetables, fruits, spices, drinks, evening snacks, dessert, appetisers, gums, sweets, alcohols, candies and any other thing you can think of, as long as it is fit for consumption.
The master classes was super dope. The fact that we had experienced and well exposed chef take the classes made it worth calling a master class, not a B. Sc class. We learnt from their experiences as chefs and their wealth of knowledge to help us in our different sectors and fields.
What more can a food event offer other than these? We're so looking forward to the next edition of GT Bank food and drink fair. We know it's gonna be awesome!
