Hi, I’m Kelvin!

This is me

The author, editor, and creator of “Cook Jungle”. This is my little piece of the internet in a nutshell. Here, I share amazingly easy, fresh, flavorful, deliciously healthy recipes that I have tried in my day-to-day life. to be honest I wouldn’t be sharing these recipes if I didn’t think they were awesome or better yet if I wouldn’t eat any of the food shared here.

I currently live and work in Dubai, United Arab Emirates as a full-time chef in some of the best five-star properties in the world. Don’t worry I will be sharing my journey of how I (a guy from KENYA) ended up here with you in parts of this blog so keep an eye out for it.

My Mission

Having worked in different kitchens around the world, my goal is to inspire you with lip-smacking food that is appetizing, delectable, AND exciting, whether you’re cooking in a restaurant, for yourself, in a food trial, for your roommates, or for your family and friends. I want you to be so psyched about these recipes that you can’t await the time that you actually get off work to go home and get started on these recipes.

Aside from all of that, I have also discovered that food from the motherland “AFRICA” is not really as much considered as cuisine by itself. So, in this blog, we are really going to put African food on the map by sharing some of the best dishes across all of Africa.

My Vision


I wholeheartedly believe that being in the kitchen cooking should be fun and recipes, flexible. This blog is all about celebrating good food, sustainable foods that are as close to their source as possible and that delight the senses and fully nourish the body. That is why I choose to infuse or do a fusion of African-inspired dishes with other international cuisines like Italian, French, Thai, Chinese, Indian, Spanish, and many other cuisines just to show you that no matter where you are, you can have “a taste of Africa” that is authentic and most importantly burst full of flavor.

All in all, I love eating and enjoying good food in good company. Also, I absolutely would LOVE seeing the food that you’re making. It would definitely make my day if you tag @cookjungle in your Instagram photos, reels, and stories!
