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!

Hello there foreigners He is selling a dream here but once you arrive the reality will hit you quite hard. First is not easy to get what he is showing you. You need to know people to invite you and take care of your stay or pay someone big money .We are living in ghana for almost a year now. First you arrive and people see you as a millionaire and a possible naive victim. Even workers you hired will try to steal from you.Outside they will not hesitate to triple the price for you and even police will stop you to get money for their ' birthday ' or lunch. The smallest opportunity they can cheat on you.The weather is so hot and humid. One you arrive in kumasi you realise there is not much safe places to eat. Between slams restaurant. Seeing sweat drops of workers dropping in your food, hygiene plus knowing their preparing cat meat or rate meat as well. at the end you get a diargea and you think how will you survive till the end of your travel. Finally you finish eating in kumasi mall restaurants the same food for months as you realise its the most safe place to eat

Awwww.. I love the vibes in this video. African people seems happy and contented!!! Power country who colonized this country in the past must be guilty and ashamed of themselves, they just used and abused the natural wealth and resounrces of this country and leave them shattered but didn't able to shatter the spirit of these beautiful people!!! GOD bless the whole Africa!!!! I still admire Brits for what they did to HK!! They made them very progressive and developed!

My daughter's name is Ashanti in honour of the brave people of the Ashantis and specially in honour of Queen Mother Nana Yaa Asantewa who bravely leaded war against the britain empire. Your video conecct's me with the Ashanti culture in a great way. When you were in the market I hoped to hear somenthing about the Ashanti Pepper (Piper guineense) or that the beautiful host family would use it. Anyway, thanks for this great video, I love to hear your son's voice (Mayca?).
