Former X FM Presenter, rugby pro, restauranteur and renowned chef, Kiran Jethwa is all set to shine in his new show Tales from the Bush Larder on National Geographic and we are so thrilled.


His restaurants in Nairobi, ‘7 seafood and Grill’ are immensely popular and my personal favourite is the one located at the Village Market (Their hanging steaks are a culinary dream for your taste buds).

Anyway back to the show,


Kiran tells us exclusively it came to be on NAt Geo as he has a contract with Fox International who own Nat Geo. His show is on a number of their platforms.

And Series 1 of “Tales from the Bush Larder” takes the viewer on a culinary adventure of Kenya, focusing on the fantastic local produce and the interesting people who are responsible for them. The show is lead by Kiran Jethwa a colorful and creative chef who uses these wonderful ingredients to produce delicious dishes, both in the bush and in his restaurant.

See Kiran harvest honey from some rather angry honeybees, avoid being struck by lightning whilst trawling for Omena on Lake Victoria, learn legendary customs of the Maasai including drinking cows blood, and help the Dassanech tribe wrestle with crocodiles on Lake Turkana. This visually striking, humorous and affectionate ode to Kenya and its food is a refreshing spin on both adventure travelogues and cooking programs and should simply not be missed!

We also asked him:
When does it premier (UK AUG 12TH)?
Correct- but please see below for other territories and  channels
So far Bush Larder 1 has been aired in 24kitchen (Foxs food channel) in Netherlands, Portugal, Turkey, Fox Finland , 24k Balkans, Viajar Spain and will be aired in :

And what was his experience of it…best and worst…
All good experiences. A continuous journey of food discovery. Really loved seeing how they catch Omena on Lake Victoria. Worst experience was being attacked by bees when harvesting honey in Machakos. The bee hive fell out of the tree and we got nailed!!
Check out the pilot….how Splendid:)

Lindsay tweets wardrobe for rehab

LINDSAY LOHAN posted a picture of herself surrounded by clothes, along with the caption, quote, “90 days and 270 looks.”  In other words, she’s bringing 270 outfits to rehab with her.

That means three outfits PER DAY.  She also set up a new website at, but there’s nothing there yet.

What a loser!

Kris Kross member, Chris Kelly dead

Rapper CHRIS KELLY has died at the young age of 34.  You’d know Chris better as the MAC DADDY from the ’90s kid hip-hop duo KRIS KROSS.

There’s no word on the cause of death, but a police source says it looks like it was a HOMICIDE.  An autopsy will take place this morning.  Kelly was found unresponsive in his home in Atlanta yesterday.  He was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Kris Kross consisted of Kelly and CHRIS SMITH . . . a.k.a. the DADDY MAC.  They were famous for their 1992 hit “Jump”, from their album “Totally Krossed Out” . . . and also for wearing their clothes backwards.

BUT here’s an exclusive 1 on 1 se did just with us:)

– what your inspiration behind the song is

Well….fun!!! A good fun, danceable jam that women can relate to… its hard to tell a guy you feel him, so I did it for them in a song. Hope it can hook people up.

-Is there a particular ‘baby’ you are singing to;)
Mmmmmm eeeehh well, its a song to help all women who’ve gone through such a situation so no man in particular.

-what made you want to get into singing…you sound amazing and should have started way sooner!
What made me sing… my own music…Collo and Ulopa. They have been begging me for years, coz all I ever did was sing at karaokes and weddings. Over a Jameson one party night, Collo said we MUST do this, and somehow I agreed….soon as one week later we were in studio.

-what next for you…
More and more music….once you taste it….you cant get enough. Am loving it so much so track after track till I give you an album before the end of this year.


Love it…have you seen the new trailer to Hangover 3? It’s wicked!

sigh…i love the movies…..
