The sumptuous Jollof experience

The sumptuous Jollof experience

Okechukwu Anazia, a Lagos State University student, knew right from the moment he settled down to enjoy his plate of jollof rice purchased from Mama Uche, the food vendor in the neighborhood’s favourite bukateria, that there was something significantly different about the taste and aroma.

Every spoonful he took of the sizzling delicacy brought home the bottom-pot taste and distinctive aroma that he had always cherished about his favourite meal.

Now, he knows the difference in the taste he relished was more down to the food’s seasoning than any sort of condiments he was previously accustomed to. Mama Uche would later confirm the addition of Terra Jollof cube to derive a newfound feeling of satisfaction and sumptuous jollof rice experience.

This is the same feel-good consciousness that is now blowing across the Nigerian food seasonings’ landscape as Terra Jollof Seasoning Cube makes positive in-roads into the hearts of millions of food lovers who cook or enjoy jollof rice — one of the country’s most popular dishes.
