Marinated Fish Fillet with Coconut Crust

Perfect for January’s warm weather, this wonderful marinated fish fillet with coconut crust is packed with a marvellous mix of fantastic flavours like creamy coconut, fresh celery and onion, as well as an effortless taste that lingers on your palate.

Broiled, Butterflied Chicken

A true Kenyan favourite, you can very rarely go wrong with chicken. Instead of broiling your chicken in different pieces, change things up a bit and butterfly it. Not only does it taste and look great, but it also allows for the flavours to evenly spread throughout the beautifully cooked bird, making for an unforgettable dinner experience.

Easy African-Style Peanut Chicken

Chicken and peanut is a classic combination. When you mix the subtle flavours of chicken with the sweet and nutty flavours of peanut butter, you create a cream-flavoured sensation that hits all the right notes. Not only is this marvellous meal healthy and low on sodium, it is also light and bright – you won’t want to miss out on this truly delicious dish.

Chilled Tomato Peach Soup

This spicy cold soup is not only filling and refreshing, but is also bursting with the tastes of summer. Its cool and refreshing flavours are a welcoming change from what your palate expects, and the unique tastes of sweet peaches can be savoured with every bite.
