My name is Duenna and I love great food.

Welcome to my blog.

I am journalist by profession and a child of God. A mum to two amazing children, 6-year-old Yinhla (boy) and 1-year-old Nyeleti (girl). I’m also a wife of a wonderful husband, Muxe.

Think of this space as my Food Diary — how my upbringing shaped my food journey will be more than evident. My dreams and aspirations for brand, Chef Duenna, will be laid bare here too.

I look forward to sharing in my journey with you!

Inkomu! Khanimambo! Asante sana!
