With their MTV EMA Best African Act award bagged, Sauti Sol is very much the band of the moment. It was with this in mind that we decided to invite them over for a Yummy Christmas dinner. Somehow they got the wrong end of the stick
and thought they were the ones meant to be cooking US dinner.
Much hilarity and some great behind the scenes pictures ensued. Enjoy it all in our main feature, Rock Star Kitchen.
In our Producer to Plate section, we detail what it took to get Kenya’s most-beloved Christmas dinner guest, the mbuzi, from the goat market at Kiamaiko to a Cookswell oven and then onto our plates for the Yummy Office Christmas party.

So go ahead, sign up for it for free (that’s right – I said free) by logging on to: yummy.co.ke/card.
It’s a win-win! You get special offers, VIP invitations to foodie events and 10 to 15% off of your meals. And us? We’ll go into the holidays with a smile on our faces!
