  • As a Kenyan who has cooked and sampled different local cuisines, Peter is still trying to wrap his head around the precise way of cooking Indian paratha — or chapati.
  • He's overly obsessed with making perfect and round Indian parathas for breakfast and makes a point of cooking them at least twice a week.
  • One of Peter's goals is to become a global foodie, tasting his way through local cuisines and connecting with people over the universal language of food.


Peter is a content writer who has been writing curiously since childhood, penning short motivational stories for fun. As a teen, he fell in love with the great novelists — W.D Wetherell, Ray Bradbury, and Agatha Christie — and decided that writing was what he wanted to build his life around. About seven years ago, he eventually got into professional SEO writing with a keen interest in tech and digital marketing but later switched to regional cuisine. Since then, it has been a continuous (tasty) learning curve for him. His passion for food inspired him to focus on healthy eating and improve his home cooking skills. As an avid cook and food writer, Peter is fascinated by how stories are intricately woven to reveal emotions accompanying each dish, creating a taste and smell experience close to eating food. He aims to mimic a similar experience for his readers, one Mashed feature at a time.


Peter holds a bachelor's degree in English with a minor in creative writing from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor (UMHB).
