The traditional food most Nigerians enjoy is usually eaten during fun and ceremonial occasions such as birthday parties, weddings, burials etc or New Year.

If you are looking for an amazing Nigerian food timetable to throw your parties? Well, the list below is sure going to make your party a success.

Small chops

Small chops are usually eaten with the fingers during a wedding ceremony and usually eaten when everyone is together at the end of the wedding ceremony. The best time to eat small chops is when everyone has finished their meal because this means that all guests have eaten their main course and it will be time for dessert.

The reason why smaller chops are more important than larger ones is that they’re more finger food, which means it’s easier to eat them with one hand while holding something in the other hand like a drink or a cutlery holder, which makes it easier for people who are nervous about eating with their hands or who have special dietary requirements such as people with arthritis or other medical conditions that make eating difficult.


Gbegiri Soup is a soup that is prepared by pounding the beans, fish or meat and other spices into a paste. The paste is then added to water and cooked until soft. The soup is then served with Amala. The name Gbegiri is derived from the Yoruba language.
