Why? I say because our food is indeed 'good' and wholesome and a lot remains to be discovered about it by many.
Well, in a bid to do just this, I hopped into my car and headed to Woolwich town centre in The Royal Borough of Greenwich on Saturday the 23rd where it's annual Carnival was taking place.
Woolwich has proven to be a very welcoming community to a diverse number of ethnicities and this fact was openly celebrated by all on the day. I went there to see, at least food-wise, how we were represented.
Here are some of the sights & sounds of the day...
A Nepalese musician on stage
Caribbean Hut was cooking up a storm....
The multi faceted Dskii events company
The Twin Duo of Elleys Donut Bar, Mobile and Function Caterers
proved they can 'mix' with the best.
Lalu Catering going home after a good day..
These folks made my day!!!
Imagine having freshly baked pizza
Now, that is ingenuity that pulls crowds, apart from the food being lovely too.
Imagine having that at your wedding garden party 😃 👍👍👍
Some folks when asked if they ever went out to eat food from some particular African or Caribbean countries; the common thread was, 'I don't know where to go to enjoy such a meal'.
So my good people, owners of 'the good food businesses', let's join forces to see that our food gets an image boost and is that little bit more accessible.
Come tell your food story in 'Fally's Food Hut' .

Keep up the 'good' work folks, till it becomes even 'better' and then your 'best'. 😃👍
