I now prepare some meals better and my house is more organized (as my mother put it). I’ve also become more confident in helping my friends come up with menus for their various occasions (whenever I’m called upon), because I’ve been equipped with variety in the preparation of a number of meals,” stated Ms. Atlanta Kufwafwa, member of staff at Strathmore School of Management and Commerce.
