GTBank food & drink Fair - Photos from the event (The Highlights)

If you weren't at the just concluded #GTbankfoodanddrink fair, i'm afraid to say you really missed a whole lot. There were lots of people and loads of fun - the turnout was awesome plus, the venue was packed to the brim with lots of people from far and near, home and abroad. It really buttressed the known fact that nothing brings people together as much as food does. The fair simply gave people the chance to bond over food and network. The GTBank food fair empowered young startups and encouraged people in the food business to showcase what they do. Trust GTBank to deliver, everything was done with a touch of class and excellence. It was really inspiring.
Apart from the exhibition area, the master class chefs at the event were truly outstanding. They turned elaborate recipes into simple meals even laymen could make. The master classes featured culinary experiences from renowned International and Nigerian chefs such as Marcus Samuelsson (Chopped Judge), Raphael Duntoye (La Petite Maison, London), Tiyan Alile (Culinary Academy), Alex Oke (Alex Cooks Food), Gbubemi Fregene (Chef Fregz), Ozoz Sokoh (Kitchen Butterfly), Uzo Orimalade (Uzo’s Food Labs), Michael Adé Elẹgbẹdé (Chef Elegbede), Atim Ukoh (Afrolems), Iquo Ukoh (1Q Foodplatter). There was also a play section dedicated to children at the event, while Chef Uzo Orimolade hosted the “I can bake” Master Class series for them. The highlight of the event was the mother & daughter face-off between chef Iquo and Atim Ukoh were the winner got to walk home with an inbuilt confection oven while the runner up got to leave with a 5 burner range courtesy kitchen craft. 
Without further ado, here are the picture highlights from the event. Are you on instagram? follow me @dobbyssignature for live updates
