AmfestExpo2018 Food Day Producer Profile: Kevin Curry
Food, in whatever form it is ingested, is a critical part of the human life . The food we eat thus play a role in our lifestyle and our relationships. This is why cuisine is an important aspect of culture and tradition of any society. There is no way you can interact with a people’s culture without interacting with their cuisine.
However the business of food has moved beyond it being a source of sustenance, it has become a multi-million dollar business, especially as increased migration brought on by globalization has ensured that foods, like people are no longer confined to a particular locale. Young “foodies” (to use the popular term) have been able to leverage on their love for healthy food and exotic cuisines to develop themselves into much sought after chefs and food enthusiasts. One of them is Chef Kevin Curry and he will be at AmfestExpo, Lagos 2018 as a producer for #foodAMFEST
