Amala, Iyan (pounded yam) and semo should also not be found wanting as trendy meals at your event.They are classic and they bring that native feeling to your events and you see guests ordering for more when served with a scintillating and mesmerizing vegetable soup, hmm very yummy and finger liking good meal. This can quickly become catastrophic if not well made and requires a very patient and experienced caterer to handle. So if it takes hiring a police to monitor the vendors when making this recipe, do it “LOL”. What I’m trying to say is monitor this process and hire a professional. To avoid the stress Hire a Professional planner that will help you choose the right food vendor.
