Location: South Coast (Diani)
Palm wine, or ‘mnazi’ is a notoriously persuasive alcoholic beverage made largely on Kenya’s south coast. Therefore, it makes sense that our intrepid chef would want to use it! Kiran hangs out with local ‘experts’ of mnazi, goes on an uncomfortable trawl for prawns in a river and heads north to Mombasa, where a bustling spice market provides him with some wonderful culinary treasures. Back on Diani beach, Kiran and his ‘mnazi’ pals enjoy his prawn-based, alcoholic effort.
