After 22 years, Chef Anita Kerai returns to Kenya, the country of her birth to explore the cultural and culinary influences that have made her the chef she is.
Anita arrives at the equator and cooks in the middle of a National Park before heading to Sweetwaters camp to cook with the head chef. Walking before sunrise she prepares a true bush breakfast on an open fire before visiting the wardens of the famous Ol Pajeta reserve and to see the last remaining Northern white rhinos on the planet. She finishes cooking in front of the waterhole at sunset.
