What to Expect

Come and learn how to make lovely Kenyan food with me.

I am Hospitality Major and with my experience and your creativity we will be able to make awesome dishes. I would love to introduce you to some of our local treats and tell you about our life in Kenya. You may have seen all the attractions, but the meeting with locals is a different experience. I live in the peaceful township of Ruai in Nairobi, and you will able to experience our daily life here.

We will have fun and talk while we are making Githeri, Matumbo and Chapatis. Githeri is a Kenyan traditional dish which originates from the Kikuyu tribe but has become popular all across the country. Its a healthy meal and rich in protein. Our national dish is Matumbo, which is a hearty and tasteful stew.
Our great chapatis go well together with the delicious Githeri and tasty Matumbo.

We will enjoy the meal we have made, and you will get great memories and recipes to bring back home.
