Dinner guide feature

A couple of months ago a friend of mine whatsapped me asking if I’d like to feature on a show. I said why not (because half the time these things don’t materialize) but in this blogging life you just keep the faith.

And months later it paid off. I was skeptical when I got the call but after sharing my location and doing my homework we gave it a shot and went for it. (Always share your location when you’re not sure! And it helps to always talk to boda guys around the area they will always validate if where you’re going is a legit place. If they don’t know it it’s probably a hoax.

Background info:

Brandplustv is an upcoming station available on GOTV and Signet and they needed a co-host for their show dinner guide. Someone who likes food. Or as we are called foodies. My great friend forwarded my name and voila! I shot a few episodes that aired last week got paid and now I’m on YouTube! Plus I was on tv last week if it helps 😉

My kikuyu ass self ended up making 4 waru dishes. I mean could life be more glorious? Without further ado here are the recipes before I keep blabbering about warus.

Below every recipe is the link to the show and you can watch as you cook. Or share with a friend. (PS being in front of a camera is no joke.😂 if you see my eyes or hands misbehaving forgive please! Or comment below we all laugh together.
