Cooking under a competitive environment can have its challenges but also a whole new space of fun. Friday 28th September at the Smokeys Restaurant, Nairobi was the Semi-Finals of the Pearl Karoga Competition. This battle was made up of eight teams and the teams that qualified to the finals are of East FM Presenters Jasmine, Aleem, Allaudin and Kunjan. The mood was ecstatic and the competition was tough. There was a significant turnout of friends and supporters of all teams and the judges had their fair share of hard bites when cracking the food to choose the finalists.
