On this page you will find details of the Ghana recipes for your
favourite food and drinks- loved all over Ghana as well as the rest of the world.

We will be taking advantage of all the knowledge, skills and secrets passed down from our mothers, grand mothers and aunties!

For those of you in the know, you’ll agree that you’ll in for a treat! In time, you’ll be able to wow family and friends so impressively, they’ll be asking you which restaurant you ordered
the food from. Trust me, I’ve been there! It was after I tried out Auntie Naa’s recipe for okro stew. Champion!

It’s our hope that these favourite Ghana recipes will give you (and those lucky people who you share them with) much culinary pleasure. It’s not about being a champion chef. But it is about enjoying yourselves.

Many of the recipes work just as well for vegetarians and fish eaters. Just adapt according to your particular taste. And if your favourite Ghana food recipe isn’t here, just drop us an email to let us know and we’ll do our very best to oblige. Or you may wish to share one of your own Ghanaian food recipes. Again, we would like to hear from you please.

Without further ado, let’s start with an absolute all time favourite.
