An authentic experience
Going shopping with Josephine and helping her preparing traditional Kenyan food in her kitchen was one of the most authentic experiences we had in Nairobi.
She is kind and easygoing, took us to a local market where we would have never gone by ourselves. We caught a local bus, which was an adventure itself. When we got back to her place she explained what food we would make and let us help her, she even sent us the recipe afterwards.
Josephine was a great host, communication was easy with her and she obviously enjoys getting to know people from around the world.
I would absolutely recommend it to anyone who is not only interested in Kenyan cuisine but also would like to have an interesting conversation with a friend from this beautiful country.

Great food and great company
I loved everything about this experience -- the trip to the market, which was fascinating, the meal itself (I guess I was supposed to help cook, but i just talked and watched) and the conversation. I will do this again when I return!

A perfect half day
I would recommend anyone that wanted delicious food to take this class. We booked two days before and Josephine responded to the request almost immediately. She is very attentive and caring.

We met by a mall and took the public bus to the local market where we picked up veggies and fruits. Prepare to walk a little bit and wear something comfortable.

We then made our way back to her home where she showed us how to cook such amazing food! I feel confident I can replicate what we did, she is really a great charismatic teacher. The afternoon was full of laughs and discussion about food from our different backgrounds.

Hands down one of my favorite things was making the chapati! It was really good to eat some fresh food. Next time I come to Kenya I will definitely do a morning class with her to learn how to make samosas! I will also book through Airbnb probably as this site doesn’t pay up immediately and she deserves it!

10/10 I would do it again. Thank you Josephine! We had a really fantastic time with you.

Highly Recommend
Josphine was amazing, I had a great time with Josphine’s cooking class. First, we went to a local market by a local public transportation (Bus). It was a really unique experience!! Visiting market was really interesting experience. She got some stuff for our cooking. I also got some veggies and fruits! It was really good deal!! She helped my shopping:) After visiting market We went her place to cook! We made traditional Kenyan meals. Chicken curry, Chapati, Ugali, Samosa, etc… She taught me local spots, Kenyan lifestyle, culture, I really enjoyed her accompany and chatting with her! Most of us come Nairobi for Safari, Giraffe, Elephant, and to see more animals! But Nairobi has deep food culture as well! I would definitely recommend to add Josphine cooking class for your itinerary! You can really see and feel what locals life in Nairobi!

Best intro to Nairobi
This experience was my intro to Nairobi. I set it for my 1st full day in the country and it was the best decision. I was able to see the community in an intimate way. I love markets and we visited a market by way of public bus. It was an easy and quick ride. The market was sooo massive that I don’t think I would have tackled it alone without a Kenyan resident but with Ms. Josephine, I felt comfortable and free. We picked our produce for our meal and I was able to get a few extra delicious pieces of fruit “my favorite things, mango and avocados”. It was great. We set out to her home to start our cooking project. We prepared a beef curry dish with a few other sides that I enjoyed but there names escape me, oh yeah and chapatti “flat bread similar to naan”. I really enjoyed my experience and the food was tasty.

Josie is wonderful!
This was by far one of my favorite experience's while visiting Nairobi. Josephine was a warm and welcomed presence from the very beginning. Traveling around the city and navigating the public transportation system, local markets, and neighborhood streets felt safe, doable, and relaxing with her as my guide. I went in with an open mind and an expectation to eat lots of delicious Kenyan food, but I was rewarded with the full blown hospitality of her family- we cooked, danced to reggaeton, and enjoyed a meal with her family as she would any other night of the week. Josie definitely embodies the strong, independent self-made spirit that I encountered throughout Nairobi and I think understanding this character makes a trip to the city absolutely more rewarding and meaningful. :)

What a unique experience!
Was an amazing trip from start to finish Nairobi is an intimidating place But with a local like Josphine it was an amazing journey into the the Kenyan market culture The market is a shock to the senses so be prepared. The locals were amazing and I got called chuck Norris John Cena and finally Arnold ! So they definitely know how to stoke the ego The Bus trip was incredible with the Reggaton tunes blasting Josphine cooked an amazing meal and shared some stories about life in Nairobi Was a unique experience
