The African queen of food stepped into Kenya recently and all the foodies in Nairobi couldn't wait to get a bite out of the action.  Siba Mtongana is everything you'd expect and more. The bubbly Food Network chef was the chief guest at the This Is Africa initiative launch. ‘DStv got to sit down with her and got a closer look at the woman holding the chef’s knife.

This was not the first time she was in Kenya. Siba and her husband Brian, who also features on her Food Network show quite a bit, came to the East African country for their honeymoon. She says “I can’t get enough of beautiful Kenya.”
