A traditional Kenyan kitchen, is found in a separate building, detached from the main house. Here all the cooking is done on a hearth formed by 3Stones.
The women of the village spend hours searching for the perfect stones. They have to be strong enough to endure the harsh cooking fire and the weight of the heavy cooking pot.
When found these 3Stones are arranged in a triangle and become the center piece of the kitchen. An earthenware pot usually sits on the stones and the fire slowly consumes three pieces of wood that meet at a point under the pot.The large pot would then be filled with meat, vegetables and spices, placed on top of the stones and left to simmer slowly, while accompanying dishes were prepared.
