About the tour

We're back in Staicy's Kenyan kitchen! This time we're focusing on a hearty, healthy meal originating from the foothills of Mount Kenya, Kenya's tallest mountain. Mukimo is a uniquely Kenyan dish (pronounced moo-key-moh) made with potatoes, maize, and pumpkin leaves. We will be serving it with traditional beef stew, so we have some hot, juicy goodness to sop up with our mukimo! As always, we'll talk you through the dish, the culture around it, and suggest some substitute ingredients according to where you live, what you can get near you, and what you like. We'll be sharing the full recipe at the end of the tour so that you can try it yourself at home.

Meet Claire


Whilst Claire is half French and half English by heritage, she is fully Nairobian by choice, and has been in Kenya for long enough to feel right at home in the city. She has lived and worked in six countries, and has always found adventures wherever she's gone: exploring the artistic and off-limits catacombs in Paris, exploring Mexico's coastline in the back of a pick-up truck, chasing alligators in Tanzania, or sky running in Kenya. But what is the common theme behind everything she does? Talking, sharing, and learning something new, so join her on her Kenyan adventures.

A great recipe, excellently explained by Claire and Staicy, with lots of good humour, and interesting information about Kenyan culture and life. You don't have to have an interest in cookery to enjoy the tour.
