We had a great time with Agnes. She took us to the local market for a taste of Nairobi, then back to her kitchen/apartment. The space is functional and gives you a feel of what the city is like. Agnes was a joy to spend the day with. She did a great job of hands-on cooking, Kenyan style. The food was great and I will try to replicate it at home for friends. I highly recommend Agnes!
I wish I could rate 6 stars. My wife and I were visiting Nairobi and we have have done many experiences like the one of Agnes’ in other cities...meet a local at a market, shop, cook and eat together. But this one was something different, because of her passion not just for her home city but also for the food. She clearly loves sharing this passion with others. We met her at a central market, purchased a whole fish and then walked to the bustling produce market, with her explaining city life and geography along the way. At the market, she took care to explain what we were buying. We took a car back to her kitchen and immensely enjoyed the next few hours of cooking, eating and back and forth sharing of perspectives from our countries. We learned a lot about ingredients and techniques of Kenyan cooking, but also about similarities and differences between life there and our home of New York. Lily and I will cherish the memories of our time and meal with Agnes, and could not give a more enthusiastic recommendation. Thank you, Agnes!
A definitely must do! From the moment we met it felt like family. Agnes and Monica warmly greeted us and took us on a tour of the fish/meat market followed by the most amazing walk through the city center. After a short Uber ride to her place of business, we began the process of preparing all the food. We exchanged stories and this is what made this a true experience. We didn’t feel like clients, but more like family that’s in town for the holidays. I would talk more about the deliciousness of each item we prepared, but it was so good and plentiful I just want to nap. If you’re ever in Nairobi, this is a must do. This is definitely a top 5 experience. Thank you Agnes and Monica for a great day.
Bonding over local authentic food is a key component to all of my travels. We had an amazing experience with Agnes and her sister Monica, learning to cook authentic Kenyan cuisine. The day was filled with awesome adventures, bargaining at the local farmers market, food prep, lots of laughs & fun and EXCELLENT food! We made coconut ugali, kieneyji vegetables, chapatis, samaki wa kupaka and Kenyan Masala chai tea. Agnes is such a sweet spirit and accommodating host. You’ll love every single minute of this experience. Thanks Agnes and Monica!!!
I had such a great time with Agnes and her sister! She replied really quick to my questions and sent me a complete menu tailored to my dietary preferences. The market tour was very interesting, and although it was crowded, Agnes ensured my safety. After the market, we spent a very enjoyable day making traditional Kenyan dishes from different areas of the country. The food delicious! Agnes and her sister described each dish as we were making it, and explained when and how it might be served. Upon my return home, Agnes followed up with me to provide video recipes for all of the incredible dishes that we made. Please do not hesitate to book this experience. You will not be sorry! Agnes is a professional, and you will learn many new things and have an incredible day!
