As we prepare for the 2017 Lagos Cocktail Week, we are officially going to kick off the week with a Seminar and Workshop on the 16th of October 2017 (the first day of the Lagos Cocktail Week). One of the new features for this year, which is also one of the major highlights, is the partnership with “Culinary Academy” to introduce a Garnish Course. This is especially important for the industry as it deals with the issue of garnish presentation which is a very key skill to being a serious player in the global cocktail making sector.
Following the introduction of the “Bar Battle” in 2016, this year is going to take a slightly different format. The representatives of the participating bars will be present and through a ballot system, they will choose the “spirits” they will work with for the competition. The guidelines will be handed over to them today and they must submit their recipes on or before October 9th 2017.
“Adding more activities to further promote the Lagos Cocktail culture is very important to us and some other new touches this year also includes the introduction a mentorship programme for people who are in the Mobile Bar Catering Services. Research shows that access to professionals in the industry is what they need. We have also introduced the use of local recipes as an essential part of the Lagos Cocktail Week menu for all participating bars.”…. says Lara Rawa, Founder of the Lagos Cocktail Week.
