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 in the famous port of Mombasa. Rain temporarily stops play, but soon the sun comes out and she heads back to the beach to cook a classic dish. Mombasa is famous for its street food and Anita wastes no time getting stuck in and cooking with the locals before an emotional trip to cook for a school for special children. She finishes at the famous Serena Beach Resort, where she gets the opportunity to cook with the chef.
