About Kiran Jethwa
Kiran Jethwa, owner of Seven Restaurants in Nairobi, is not your typical chef. “Jethwa tries to push the usual eats a bit further, preparing what he discovers in the field with a bit of creativity and a handful of unusual spices, often to the amusement of locals looking on,” said The New York Times.
He is a noted restaurateur, food adventurer and global gastronaut positioning himself as Kenya’s first Celebrity Chef. According to the Associated Press, “Jethwa is what many in the Western world consider unlikely — a celebrity chef from Africa.”
His freshman debut adventure series, ‘Tales from the Bush Larder’ (TBL) quickly became a fan favourite bagging the Best TV Show award in the celebrated Kalasha International Film and TV Festival awards. The Fearless Chef is TBL on Steroids.
“That drive to parade the best the continent has to offer is part of what makes the show a success.”
-Mark Leslie, I.C.E Fox International Channels
Daunting as it is, Kiran feels proud to be the only Kenyan to feature on Nat Geo. “It proves that anyone can go anywhere and do anything if only they focus on quality.”
