The BME Network of Manchester put on this event for the second year to celebrate international women's month. We invited women of different heritage to come together and put on a spread of food and drink culturally pertinent to ones heritage. Each table group had to dedicate their table to a 'strong Manchester Woman of Heritage' and we chose Aunty Julie Asumu - it was a surprise to her and she was overwhelmed. Well if you know me and mine we love a competition based around heritage and culture. Last year we lost out on dress presentation to the Congolese women. This year my women won best dressed group - due to our coordination of colours. Now I felt this was obvious because we Nigerians invented "asheobi" (cultural uniformed dressing). We provided a palatable spread of Gari (fufu) with Egusi and Okoro Soups. There was 'puff-puff' a type of round semi-sweet doughnut; Fish fritters; fried spicy chicken wings and a selection of herbal teas - cerese, ginger, mint and sorrel. The Congolese women, won best dressed table - next year watch this space for a new winner.
