About the Founder
Antonia was born and grew up in England but is of Kenyan ancestry. Family holidays were spent on safari in Kenya. After helping helping out with the horse riding safaris on the acclaimed Borana ranch, it was here that she realised she was most at home. As well as graduating with a BA in English literature, Antonia also trained as a chef with the renowned Leith’s School of Food and Wine where she discovered a passion for cooking. Her innate flair stems from her mother, a successful restauranteur and chef.
Publishing her first book ‘Tastes of Tassia’ in 2011, Antonia has now started her cookery school in the Bush. Antonia’s Kitchen is situated at her home on the slopes of Mount Kenya and offers a variety of cookery courses catering for safari chefs, home cooks and youngsters on Gap year’s.
