Most home cooks can attest to having tried different recipes to try and expand their culinary skills. For a professional Chef like Ali Mandhry, a recipe is meant to include the technical aspects of a dish while also teaching the artistic combination of flavour and texture.
A recipe communicates the ingredients and procedures the chef uses to make his creations.
On Thursday, August 27, James Njoroge (Jimmy/Pasta Chef) went viral on social media after hatching and sharing affordable homemade recipes packaged with humour that had netizens debating on his cooking style.

The Nairobi based Anthropologist and a digital journalist with one of the local dailies stated that he draws his motivation from film making and comedy and the desire to share his ideas with anyone who interacts with his space.
"I enjoy cooking for my girlfriend and I try out recipes based on the ingredients that I have. This prompted me to make some short videos and post them online.
"I did not study hospitality. I learned how to cook from a young age and polished my skills from online tutorials. No one has reached out for advice yet on how I make my recipes but they are easy to follow and understand as depicted in the videos," Pasta Chef stated.
