Description

Want to see the markets of Accra, be exposed to regional foods and flavors and learn how to whip up a West African feast? Then join this fun-filled tour of Accra's markets and food outlets!

Start by meeting up with a local guide then hit the streets to discover the variety of fresh food on offer to the public. Eating from market stalls and roadside carts is commonplace throughout all of Africa and is an experience not to be missed when traveling in this part of the world.

Witness a wide range of food being prepared, from large cauldrons of bubbling stew to grilled vegetables and fresh fruit juices and shakes. Here, the dishes and styles of cooking have evolved over centuries and have often been handed down from generation to generation.

Perusing food stalls and chatting with locals is a great way to learn about traditions and customs of Ghana so don't be afraid to ask questions and most importantly - try a few local delicacies.  

Next, hop in a shared taxi and head to the Pink Hostel to meet up with a local chef, where you will learn how to prepare a few dishes yourself. Perhaps learn how to make kenkey (fisherman's soup) or other dishes typical of this region.

Finish this tour with newfound knowledge of West African cuisine, ready to use in your own kitchen when you get home.
