Ghana RootsWritten by:Zoe on: June 11, 2013
This is my dad. He’s Ghanaian, Fanti – his family hail from Elmina on Cape Coast originally but he grew up in North Kaneshie, Accra. That’s where I’m headed. He looks pretty cool huh. I inherited his thick head of hair and we share a penchant for Afros and African food. I learnt many of the dishes I cook at Ghana Kitchen from watching his strange and wonderful concoctions growing up. I’m heading back to Accra to see how and what they cook in a Fanti household, my Grandma’s, and then heading to Volta to see what the Ewe people get up to in the kitchen or on the fire outside.
