My role models 

My role models 

Every now and then it is important to tell the people you love that you love them and express your gratitude to them for all that they have done for you.

For me my best friends from the day I was born, are my parents, Jittesh and Alka Shah.

I have had an enriched life full of lessons, experiences and travel all thanks to them.

They motivated me and made me believe in myself. Shared my successes and fails with me and always encouraged me to try that little bit harder to achieve my dreams.

I get my love for food from both of them. Since my childhood they always took my brother and I to different restaurants, cooked a variety of culturally different dishes at home and took us on travels, both in Kenya and abroad.

This opened my mind to all the different tastes and flavours that existed out there and further fuelled my passion for food and travel.

My mum is an amazing cook and when I can cook like her is the day I feel I have achieved something.

She is always trying new recipes and making all sorts of yummy biscuits, cakes and savoury dishes. 

My dad has the dream occupation of making ice cream. If you are ever in Kenya you must try it out! It is called Angels Delite. 


He can always be found trying new flavour combinations of ice cream be it in soft serve tubs, popsicles or ice cream sticks. 

My parents have the biggest hearts and our house in Kenya is like an animal rescue centre. From a young age we have had all sorts of pets ranging from owls, tortoises, parrots to chow chow dogs.

I am eternally grateful to my parents for opening my eyes to the world, never imposing restrictions on me when I was growing up and letting me experience life.

And most importantly supporting me in every crazy dream I have. This ranges from me having two left feet in ballet but they still came to every show, my desire to learn Karate and getting bored, buying me a keyboard for my love for music and now supporting my food blogging adventure through constant kind words and encouragement. 

Thank you mum and dad I love you both dearly💚 xx
