Bush Larder – Season 1 Toggle
I dreamt up “The Bush Larder” with my good friend Dan Prior, owner of Quite Bright Films as a means of highlighting the many positive aspects of Kenyan people, Kenyan life and Kenyan food.
In the show we travelled across the stunning countryside of Kenya to find interesting ingredients, and in turn met the vibrant people responsible for procuring them. I was astounded at the sheer resourcefulness shown by the fishermen and farmers of rural Kenya who often operate in extremely harsh conditions with crude equipment yet remain persistently cheerful and positive. The whole experience was really quite humbling when you see first hand the lengths people go to get them.
We teamed up with East African home entertainment network Zuku, who are currently airing the show in Kenya. The response locally has been fantastic and the show has also sparked much interest overseas. Fox International recently purchased the rights to air the show overseas and have commissioned a further series.
Here are some great behind the scenes photos from the first series.
