Home-cooked Meals in Ghana

Read all the exciting things our scholars have been up to!

Something that I read about before coming to Ghana was the hospitable nature of Ghanians. I have definitely experienced it during my stay so far. One thing that has really stood is the sharing of food. I have been invited to so many meals thus far and initially I would not accept the invitation. This last week I was invited to my friend Victor’s farm for a traditional cooked meal. I am very glad that I accepted the invitation. We watched him prepare rice and bean stew that was served with fried plantains. The stew was deliciously spicy and the plantains just as deliciously sweet. One thing I’ve learned is that when a stranger in Ghana offers you some food. Take part! it was almost always be delicious. This meal is one of the top 5 meals i have had in Ghana so far.
