Programmes Manager of Happy98.9FM, Elwoode Mantey, explained contestants will be scored based on taste, creativity/presentation, cooking technique, neatness, nutrition and health and time.
He disclosed the contest which has already gained momentum will see the winner at the grand finale walk home with a Gh₵20,000 prize pot including a fat cow.
He urged various Zongo communities to partake in the contest to promote sportsmanship and unity.
“We started the Salah foodfest cooking competition from Kasoa, to Tema then hosted it in Nima and now we want to bring it to the people of Abeka. Throughout the competition in the various venues, we’ve been able to show Ghanaians how exciting and harmonious the Zongo communities are in the country. As expected, the final showdown will come off at Fadama and I want to entreat the contestants in the Abeka edition to bring their A game on board because the prize is worth the sweat and fun.”
