‘Foods of Kenya’, a show about popular local foods in the country, is back on TV after taking almost two years off. Director and writer Eugene Mbugua, signed a deal with KTN for the 5th season.
‘Foods of Kenya’ explores the traditional culinary history, art, fashion culture, music, and dance of different Kenyan communities.
Eugene said on social media;
“We started this show in 2019 with the aim of showcasing the wide array of Kenyan food and culture that remains unknown to many. #FoodsOfKenya Season 5 premiers tonight at 8 p.m. on @ktnhome_ and @NikiMags has jokes”
He added; “In this latest season, we will traverse the country all the way from Muhuru Bay to Kalokol, Lake Jipe to Mount Sagallia, and Rumuruti to Busia exposing different eating cultures and habits of these communities. It’s an exciting adventure that we hope the audience can join us on and learn a thing or two from other communities.”
The program is hosted by Kenyan producer Mwaniki Mageria . Unlike the other four seasons, Mbugua promised fans to expect a better script, detailed look, and top-notch production in season five.
The super Director added;
“The year that the show has taken a break allowed us to put in more work into our production quality, our equipment, and overall style of storytelling, we hope that these improvements will be a gift to our audiences new and old.”
