You cannot miss out on this opportunity. Not because making chapati and samosas from ingredients you’ll buy at the local market is once-in-a-lifetime, but because to meet with someone wonderful as Josephine and to connect over food is something I will never forget. Bonus that I was the only one in the group who attended! 10/10 would recommend!

I made this booking for a friend of mine who had a great experience enjoying the market and cooking experience. He was exited also for the left over he had the next day. Ibrahim enjoyed Josephine's company and the opportunity to immerse in Kenyan culture.

This was my second time booking with Josephine and I didn't regret it. The morning rush to the market was quite an experience. It was great to experience the hustle and bustle of farmers bringing in their fresh crop. We spent the morning cooking up a storm. We ate and Josephine even helped me coordination with my next Airbnb experience after her. Another great experience in the books. When I'm back in Kenya I'll definitely be back to see Josephine.
