  • Crispus Kinyua

    I like the part you say that we are born free and uncorrupted. Indeed corporations have taken advantage of us for a long time.

  • Crispus Kinyua

    We need to taste your cuisine chef Kabui

  • susan

    great thoughts shared and i love the fact that you are looking at the whole food chain and the need to think through all those areas.
    Waoo the cuisine has such a interesting name, i would love to have more conversations on this.

  • Food is a very political and intellectual subject matter and must be discussed within a complete connected circuit and not in isolated independent units…

  • Chakulakimani

    Chef Kabui is such an inspiring force. I dig the meaning behind afro futuristic conscious cuisine. His approach to food and life in general is worth emulating. Nuff respect.

  • John Mmbaga

    Inspiring indeed. Chef Kabui.
