Established in 2016, this festival draws hundreds of people to celebrate African food culture. At CHOP BAR, people are transported to a world of flavors, music, and style, while they enjoy tasty bites by a celebrity chef, indulge in crafted cocktails, and dance to global rhythms.
Chef Eric Adjepong is the co-owner of Pinch & Plate, a pop-up dining service in Washington, DC. A finalist on Season 16 of Bravo’s “Top Chef”, Eric introduced judges and viewers to staple West African dishes like fufu and egusi stew - a first in the history of the show.
His philosophy behind food is simple - using the best ingredients makes for the best meal. His flavor profile comes from his classical French training, industry experience, travels and West African heritage.
