About
Enjoy a private and authentic cooking demonstration and homecooked meal with your host Grace. This is a perfect experience for anyone looking to connect with local culture over food. Grace learned to cook from her mother and grandmother when she was a young girl. Her love for cooking grew when she got married and learned additional cooking skills from her late husband who was a great cook. Grace lives with her daughter in the outskirts of Nairobi city and currently works for an NGO that offers business training to women. Sharing cultures and making people feel at home when they are away from their home is what she most enjoys about hosting travelers. Apart from cooking Grace also loves to read and swim. Get a glimpse into a typical Kenyan household and experience the Kenyan lifestyle and cuisine during this private, authentic food experience.

What to expect
  • This is a unique opportunity to visit the home of a local and explore traditional culture and cuisine. Meet Grace at her home and together take a cab to the nearby Kikuyu market. The Kikuyu market is in the Kikuyu town - it’s not a big market but has all the ingredients necessary for your cooking class. This a small, basic market that locals frequent to buy vegetables, fruits and other ingredients needed to cook a Kikuyu tribal meal. You will join Grace in her modestly sized kitchen to cook a traditional tribal meal. Please note that because Grace’s kitchen is very small she will be doing most of the cooking while you watch. She will have you help whenever possible. Due to space constraints this is more of cooking demonstration rather than a hands-on cooking class. Grace will share wonderful stories about her grandmother (who is over 100 years old!) making mukimo for the family, and other variations of the dish that you can make with pantry ingredients. Learn to cook mukimo (mashed potatoes and greens) or ugali (mashed corn flour mixed with water) or pilau (spiced rice) and local vegetables during this one hour authentic Kenyan cooking demonstration in a local home.
