Unlike any other wedding receptions attended where the regular fried rice et al are served, a couple has changed the normal ‘setting’ by serving ‘gari soakings’ at their wedding reception.
Gari Soaking is a popular Ghanaian dessert made with gari (a powdery food material flour made from the tuberous roots of a cassava plant).
As the name implies, it is made by soaking the gari in water or milk with a little addition of sugar.
In a viral video of the excerpts from the wedding, a group of well-dressed guests were seen sitting around a table eating bowls of gari and groundnut.
One cannot tell if this new entry of food served at their wedding reception is a way of garnering social media hype or genuinely the couple stayed within their budget and hence could only afford the ‘gari soakings’.
