The mother and sister-in-law of Kibet Serem chat while a pot of milk heats over a fire to make yogurt in their village near Kericho, Kenya. (From the book What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets.) Kibet looks after a tea plantation that his father planted on their property when Kibet was a young boy and is responsible for milking the cows that his family owns. He sells extra milk to a nearby school for a government feeding program and gives some to his mother who makes yogurt and sells it. Their staple food is ugali, a maize meal porridge.
