Great find Kels
Well written article that captures the essence of Ghanaian cuisine perfectly.
I remember working @ an American school and some of the older kids would sneak off and join us for some our waakye or rice and stew we had bought from the street vendors @ lunch time.
He is right, we need to promote our local foods cos Ghanaian food ...thats watz up, for real

some of our foods are too spicey for the western taste (epecially european). I could be done especially the Indians and chinese have done it and to some extent the latinos as well. we just have to look for the right approach

I agree. I have a couple of suggestions...ease up on the pepper (as you already stated) and fillet the meat unless it's chicken. Chicken is about the only thing Americans will eat on the bone. :)

Right. I like some pepper, though. A lot of folks do; otherwise, Indian, Thai, Cajun, and Mexican food would not be so popular.

see , I find the foods u listed except Thai to be spicy but not really hot...
I love Thai basil fried rice (extra spicy) from the joint near my house ..That stuff makes my head sweat...

Mexican I don't really like (too much cheese/beans) and don't even know why people think it is hot...

Cajun from what I have tasted is spicy but not really hot...

Vindaloo curry can be hot , but totally takes away from the taste...

Oh Ye of little faith, have faith in your own culture for a change
Market it the Same as gumbo, btw did you know gumbo is An African word?
I read somewhere it is an Angolan word for okra/okro

These wikki's might help
