You want to attend the Hogbetsotso festival celebration this year but the question lingering on your mind is, what food is eaten during the Hogbetsotso festival? This is a genuine question since you may also be eating that same food.
During the festival, there is a food bazaar edition on Sunday, a day after the grand durbar. This is where different cooked foods are exhibited and sold to the general public and you are free to eat as many different foods as you can afford.
To be honest and sincere with you, there is one particular food that I personally would want you to taste and you cannot leave the festival without doing that. I hope you are ready to hear about it.
What Food Is Eaten During Hogbetsotso Festival
The Ewes over the years have diversified their food consumption so until you go into the history books, it will be difficult to identify the main local food of the Anlo people even if you live with them.
However, you must have in mind that the only food an Anlo native will eat on any day is Akple (made with corn flour and cassava dough), to be more specific, Eworkple.
Yes, the food eaten during the Hogbetsotso festival celebration is Eworkple (made with corn flour only) with Agbame tadi or Aborbi tadi (hot pepper with anchovies/herring). This food is a must-taste for you this year as you head over to the celebrations with friends and family.
