Chef Njathi Kabui
"Food is the most political thing you have ever touched in your life. You can not be a consumer of food without thinking about the whole process of producing, transporting and processing this food. If there is any injustice in this process, you’re an accomplice to this crime."
Njathi Kabui is an eclectic Chef with a passion for Food Justice, a Leading expert in Food Literacy, a Medical Anthropologist, and an organic farmer. He is actively involved in promoting Food Literacy as a public speaker, blogger, author, and social commentator.
Chef Kabui considers himself as an organic chef, who has intentionally designed his own disruptive cuisine. He calls this cuisine, “Afro Futuristic Conscious Cuisine” which promotes a mix of indigenous and healthy foods for the sake of sovereignty, health, and food justice.
In this video, Chef Njathi Kabui takes us on a journey back to his ancestral home in Murang’a. This is where the first food he ate was grown, this is where his passion for food and food literacy, food justice is rooted and linked to the history of Kenya too.
