What to Expect

Join me for a fun cookery course in Nairobi, where you'll learn how to make traditional Kenyan dishes.

You will have a great cooking experience with me. We will be using local ingredients to make some truly mouth-watering dishes. We will be making some delicious mukimo, which is traditional mashed potatoes with corn and pumpkin leaves. You'll also learn how to make tasty pilau rice and perfect chapatis.

I learned all my cooking skills from my grandmother, and now I'd love to share with you what this wise chef taught me! You'll enjoy learning how to make perfect chapati and smooth mukimo. After cooking, we will sit down and enjoy the lovely African meal that we've made.

You may have seen the city's attractions, but meeting with local people is a different experience. As well as introducing you to some of our local treats, I can tell you more about life here in Kenya. Join us for an unforgettable cooking experience!

The cooking class with Denise was incredible. She first took us shopping so that we could see how she chose the ingredients for our meal. She then took us to her beautiful home where she took us step by step through the meal preparation. Then we ate.... What delicious food! Did I mention that Denise is a great host? We spent as much time laughing as we did cooking. She also sent us copies of the recipes. I highly recommend this activity.
