The blog is currently run by Chani Solanki who took over from the original founder, her brother Rajan. Rajan lost his life in the 2013 Westgate terrorist attack.

The one thing that Kenyans love about Kaluhi and her cooking is that, it is simple and is Kenyan but oh-so-delectable. Her cooking is very relatable. She uses readily available ingredients, things that we already have in our pantries or can get from the shop down the road. She is very creative and can turn simple local food items into a big deal. That is why most Kenyans simply run to her page if they need an idea for dinner. You do not need sophisticated kitchen equipment to try her recipes.
