Speaking about the new season, she says, “Christmas is one of my favourite seasons because it brings about all these memories that I have had of Christmas when growing up in Kaloleni. We would always help with the prep the night before. That’s why I look forward to always enhancing the classic Christmas meals with that extra oomph during the Kenyan Chrismas Throwdowns.” Adding, “I want you to make sure that you do not miss a beat of season 2 by making sure you subscribe to my channel on YouTube. I am about to bring it!”

Miss Mandi has been at the limelight of re-imagining Kenyan cuisine since launching her YouTube Channel in 2016. She partnered with Lamu County for the Lamu Cultural Festival to produce a YouTube series called “Discover Lamu” where she showcased the local Swahili delicacies and traditional cooking techniques. This inspired her to start this series where she presents Kenyan dishes, but with a modern twist that elevates them by infusing different flavours and inspiration from cooking techniques from other cultures, she has experienced through her travels. In 2018, she produced the first season of ‘Kenyan Christmas’ which included recipes for some family favourites such as traditional Swahili pilau, mbuzi fry, mshikaki and kuku stew.
