►SUBSCRIBE for 2 new videos per week: http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe ►T-shirts and caps available now: https://migrationology.com/store/ ►Watch the entire Ghana series: https://goo.gl/9mWUGk Thanks to Can Do Tours (http://www.candotours.com/) for arranging this amazing Ghanaian food experience for me. From Cape Coast, Ghana, we drove inland to Kumasi, a major city in the central Ashanti Region of Ghana. I was excited to sample authentic Ashanti food, and to spend just a short time exploring Kumasi. The drive from Cape Coast took about 4 hours. Fufu for Lunch - When we arrived, we were all quite hungry and so we stopped at a local chop bar (Ghanaian local food restaurant) for lunch. I’m not really sure of the name of this spot, or I don’t even think it really had a name written on it. But it was a popular neighborhood spot, especially known for their fufu - a West African staple food of pounded plantain and cassava. I had it along with a mix of palm nut soup and a variety of meats. Fufu mix - 18 GHC ($3.80) per bowl Ashanti Food Cooking in Kumasi, Ghana - The main activity food activity of the day was meeting a host family and going to their home to cook and experience authentic Ashanti Ghanaian food. Before going home, we stopped at a local market in Kumasi to buy some vegetables, and some essentials for the cooking, especially taro leaves. Kontomire stew - I didn’t really know what we’d be cooking, but learned it was a dish called kontomire stew, a stew made from fermented fish for flavor and mostly taro leaves (also called cocoyam in Ghana). The leaves were boiled and ground with garlic and spices, then doused in boiling palm nut oil to finish it. The dish was served with boiled green plantains and cocoyams that you could dip into the kontomire stew. It was also amazing to eat with avocado, and the highlight of my day was eating with the entire family. This is the final video from this Ghana food and travel series!

@10:50 that shoe guy was mocking mark not laughing with him. If you look closely he was mocking him and then he told him that "back home you use a machine, here it's man power." He then thanked him for posting him online, another way of him saying " thank you for making fun of my life". Those are the guys you need to watch out for because they will rob and kill you.

You have has SO many amazing things to eat all over the world. In truth I wasn't a fan of you but that has changed. I didn't think you were "genuine" or sincere but I was simply WRONG. If you could answer this question I would be grateful and thankful. What is the BEST thing you have eaten ever? What and where please. BTW, I liked the shirt, no REALLY , it was cool looking

Mark, are you not worried about catching Ebola? There is still an Ebola epidemic in Africa - it is still ongoing. Don't ever go to Africa again. Are you just trying to be politically correct?

why can't Africans just get modern appliances to help them prepare the food better cleaner? I love the simple clean colter they have, but it could be a little cleaner.I definitely would love to try their good looking food!!!

Luke Jackson Jackson, we stay true to our culinary traditions and culture even when we are surrounded by modern appliances, for the same reason we hold on to our mud huts while surrounding ourselves with modern architecture. #StopTellingUsHowToLive #WeAreTheFirstHumans ...

Is Unfortunately, the way Western Media portray our our People and our Beautiful Continent. The need to know, that every region of the world is different, with different Cultures, and way of life. Our People are accommodating, kind, and share everything they have together. I am very Proud of my People,our beloved and our Beautiful Continent
