Description

Learn how to bargain like a pro—and eat like a local—on this culinary and cultural tour through Accra’s bustling, personality-rich markets. Become acquainted with regional ingredients, interact with local vendors, and prepare popular, well-loved dishes during an interactive cooking class.

With your expert guide, head into Accra’s colorful and buzzing markets, with stalls brimming of fruit, herbs, and exotic produce. As you weave through the crowd, follow the wafting aroma of freshly grilled meat or pungent fish soup, leading you to a myriad of delicious food stalls. Take the opportunity to chat with the vendors, and learn about their time-honored recipes passed down through the generations.

Next up, catch a shared taxi—the primary means of transport—and travel to the Pink Hostel, where a local chef welcomes you for a cooking lesson. Get hands-on instruction as you create traditional West African dishes like kenkey, fermented cornmeal dumplings steamed in banana leaves, and enjoy the fruits of your labor over a shared meal—a delicious ending to your tour.

The tour guide is very experienced and knowledgeable. Most importantly he was welcoming and friendly and he was willing to tailor the tour to suit the needs of participants. The experience of cooking in a kitchen with a local chef was unique. I would highly recommend this tour.
