The TV show returning for its 5th season after taking a year break, explores the traditional culinary history, art, fashion culture, music, and dance of different Kenyan communities.
“We started this show in 2019 with the aim of showcasing the wide array of Kenyan food and culture that remains unknown to many. In this latest season we will traverse the country all the way from Muhuru Bay to Kalokol, Lake Jipe to Mount Sagallia, and Rumuruti to Busia exposing different eating culture and habits of these communities. It’s an exciting adventure that we hope the audience can join us on and learn a thing or two from other communities.” Mbugua told Nairobi News.
