Somalia: The Master Chef of Mogadishu"'The Master Chef of Mogadishu was a brave piece of film-making that showed a fresh perspective of life in Somalia. Beautifully filmed and observed, it was a story of hope, showing the resilience and bravery of one man determined to play his part in rebuilding his war-torn country.
