Creative Brief

Indigenous, is a celebration of African food. It is also a critical look at food security in the face of looming climate change. The mini-series, covers indigenous food from Zambia, Kenya and Ghana. Speaking to a knowledgeable group of food lovers, chefs, farmers and  media personalities, Indigenous seeks to find which foods are really indigenous to Africa, the parallels between  African culture, lifestyle and  our food choices, as well as the impact of Climate change in different parts of African communities.
