Ruspolia differens aka katydids, locally known as ‘Nsenene’ is a Uganda delicacy that’s mostly consumed in the months of April to May and November to December.
The latest is that Striddle Events Africa, an events company has come up with several recipes such as Samosa Nsenene, Burger Nsenene, Pancake Nsenene, Bread Nsenene and Chapati Nsenene which will be exclusively unleashed for the ardent consumers to enjoy whilst dancing to soothing musical beats by our local talents.
Speaking to the press, Sebulime Peter the CEO “Nsenene Ku Beat,” he asserted that they were supposed to have this event in May this year but decided to postpone it to November so they can prepare well enough to give people a better experience.
“The idea is to promote food tourism and this event thus presents a unique opportunity for Uganda’s vendors, consumers, corporate companies and tourism institutions to celebrate the country’s rich and original snack Nsenene along with the cultural music mixes.” Sebulime said during the launch.
Sebulime said that Uganda’s local food delicacies represent the Uganda on the international scene and so their main ambition is to make “Nsenene” a global delicacy and so its upon every Ugandan to embrace the local delicacies that represent the traditional Uganda that we are.
He added that there will be activities set to beautify the whole event including among others cooking competitions, games, live video mixing, live band, celebrity cookouts and artists performance.
The event is set to happen on Sunday 24th November at Hill Top Garden, Naguru and gates will be opened at 10am with the cover charge going for only UGX 10k with free entrance for children from 10am till late.
