Ghana: Ghanian food and culture

Ethan Zuckerman writes about a visit to Ghana by a popular TV host, Anthony Bourdain, “His camera crew does an excellent job of capturing the chaos, color and rhythm of the place, introducing the host to street food and the wonders of akpeteshie, Ghanaian moonshine distilled from palm wine. He visits one of Ghana’s best loved chop bars – Asanka Local – where he starts his culinary journey with Omo Tuo, my single favorite Ghanaian meal (pounded rice balls served with palm or groundnut soup.)”
