CHEF Malachi W Mwaniki CEO, Chefs Grind
My culinary journey didn’t begin at an early age. In truth, I by no means knew culinary was a profession. Just like some other younger man I at all times wished to be an engineer. When I completed my highschool schooling, I went to work for my aunt who has a catering firm in Kenya, which is thought us Bella Tents and Catering as I waited for my highschool outcomes.
This is the place I used to be launched to the kitchen as a steward and later received curious about cooking. Immediately my outcomes got here out, I found considered one of my highschool associates had joined “cooking school” as I then known as it, and I instantly known as him and that’s the place my culinary journey has begun.
