#GTBankFoodDrink2019 takes a little twist, turn and retains some peculiarities which you should know of.

The upcoming GTBank Food and Drink Festival is taking a little twist this season. In no course, was this article written to undermine the effort and handwork that organizers of GTBank Food and Drink fair have put over the years to bring to foodies a memorable event.

It was written to contrast, see the similarities and differences over the year’s as regards the renowned Gtbank Food and Drink Fest!

Merging two speakers / demonstrators for a Master class:

This season will feature two big personalities ( Chris Fynes and Tom Reaney) in a single session. However, there appears to be a kind of merger which is the first of it’s kind and we are sure many food enthusiasts are looking forward to their demonstration.

Over the year’s Gtbank Food and Drink has maintained the same number of chefs who demonstrate in the Master class but merging two speakers is what appears to be different.

Increase in the number of speakers and Male chefs dominance:

Organizers have taken up the event to another level as number of chefs who demonstrate at the annual GTBank Food and Drink Festival has increased over the years.

Gender is definitely not an issue in the gastronomy industry because over the years, male chefs have proven that food making isn’t just a female thing but applies to both parties. This year in the GTBank Food and Drink the female folks aren’t seen as expected in the category of those conducting Master class unlike last year when we had the likes of; Siba Mtongana, Muneera Tahir aka. Chef Muse, Sunny Anderson, Imoteda Aladeokomo, Elizabeth Solaru and Lorraine Pascale. But as for Gtbank food and drink 4.0 male chefs are more prominent.

The introduction of new food ideas and flavours:

The organizers of GTBank Food and Drink went all out to bring nothing short of excellence to attendees this year as they introduced “Sushi” and “Chocolate” expert to the festival for a feel of newness to lover’s of sushi and chocolate respectively.

Come back of some chef:

Gtbank food drink and the amazing food enthusiasts seems to have not had enough of Chef Raphael Duntoye, Patron of Le Petite Maison Restaurants. This will be the fourth time he will be sharing his wealth of knowledge with foodies via the GTBank Food and Drink platform.

Reacting to the post published by MyCookery Zone as regards his come back Lpm restaurants said , “Exciting times!! ♥️”.

Increase in the number of days for the festival, food vendors and retaining the venue:

GTBank Food and Drink festival is all about promoting enterprise and so this season won’t be an exception. According to GTBank they will be “featuring more vendors, more renowned masterclass facilitators and more food enthusiasts from around the world”.

If there is anything we appreciate about the fest it is sticking to a venue for over 4 years so because GTBank loves to deliver on a distinct level the event will hold for 4 days;
Date: Sunday, April 28th – Wednesday, May 1st, 2019.
Venue: Plot 1, Water Corporation Drive, Oniru, Victoria Island, Lagos.
Time: 10am daily
Entry is FREE !!!

Unlike previous editions 2016 & 2017 the event held on two days and 2018 the event held for three days.

Gtbank Food and Drink Festival 2019, expect nothing but an exceptional event. There will be Master classes, Cookery classes, Retail stalls, Street foods and Children’s play corner.

Gtbfood Food and Drink Festival, it’s all about promoting enterprise!
