A adore a seriously pimped up avo toast on the weekend when breakfast merges with lunch and you have more time to potter around the kitchen. This rendition with hummus, poached (fried) egg, avo, feta, tomatoes, rocket and za’atar comes from the beautiful new Angama Mara cookbook – Out Of An African Kitchen. It’s also a popular breakfast you will find on the menu at the lodge where the food is uncomplicated but always delicious.

I was lucky to have been commissioned to shoot the food for the book across six locations at the lodge in Kenya and at my home studio. It’s on sale in all good bookshops and can be recognised by its bright red and blue colours. You literally can’t miss it. Be sure to check out the incredible competition I am running on my Instagram page until Sunday the 19th where one lucky entrant could win a bucket-list dream safari holiday to Angama mar in the Maasai Mara.

Here are a few of the pics I have taken at the lodge on my visits and for the book.

    The photos make you daydream for some time in the bush. Beautiful!

  2. Stunning photos. We got to visit the Masai in Tanzania, I think outside of the Ngorogoro Crater area. It was the most surreal experience of my life. Uncomfortable and exhilarating at the same time.
