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!

@meliat yammi Do you mean one meal for ten people? Not normal for you based on your culture, but perfectly normal for them in their culture. They take sharing a meal to a whole new level that you will not be able to understand.

I find it fascinating how much of the food staples are imports from South and Central America. Plantains, tomatoes, the spices, the peppers on and on.
Esi Amoah (15 days ago)
Every staple and vegetable you see here is actually grown right here in Ghana. We do not source our food from South and central America... Lol And dating back to historical times we've always grown these 😊 But then that goes to tell how much of a global village we are in 🤷🤗

I have been watching this guy for about a week or 2 so can somebody Answer this, how Is he able to eat any in every type of food that comes his way? Does he ever throw up because when my Taste buds dont like something, I instantly want to spit it out. Or does he just keep it down due to respect For the Culture.

I stumbled over his video last night, I kept watching having to remind myself that 6 am comes really fast, I think I watched like 4 videos and had to call it quits or I would not get any sleep, it is so addicting to watch how they prepare food, and how he sits with them and eat from the same boil without prejudice.. Some people would worry about eating from the same pot, but these people do this every single day, and no one got sick from each other. I love how they put their foot in preparing their meals..I mean, they get a full work out every single day, because they cook fresh food, they don't eat leftover like Americans, lol.. I was wishing I was eating..ANd this guy in this video, he seems like he was teasing me with how good the food tasted, he kept going into little details how the food tasted, and if it was hot or cold or spicy or how good the vanilla or cocoa beans tasted. Nothing is imported, so these people live a relatively healthy life, by eating freshly prepared food from scratch.
