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!

Pork leg tough-rubbery, as Mark called it is an indication of not being done. I don't care what culture prepared it. All looked good, wish I too could sample.

Travel tip: Carry a "spork" instead of eating with your hands. Nothing like explosive diarrhea to ruin an expensive trip to the Eastern Hemisphere.

I've always wanted to visit Ghana and Mark just sealed it for me. I can tell the meal prepared by the family was really delicious, not sure about the lunch he had though. I'm learning to read when he really likes food versus when it's just ok. Anyway just by watching his vlogs there are so many places that were never on my travel radar that are now. Thanks for showing some of the places in the world that have been written off our minds.

I like the fact that everything is so earthy, I haven't seen one eating utensil in any of the videos, everyone eats with their hands...seems more efficient and fewer things to wash.

African is so beautiful and rich .Am Sudanese.Our main problem is that of course the corrupted leaders.if it wasnt for them, there would no a single african leave looking for better life or jobs. We own the biggest content with massive natural resources that could feed the entire world,let only African.
