A Picasso Menu Tasting at the Fairview Hotel Nairobi

Food brings people together and that was our case when we experienced an evening tasting a variety of food and paired drinks. Everyone deserves one night during a hectic month where you sit down with your loved ones and enjoy a 4- hour long dinner enjoying a Chef’s special sipping on expensive wine served by a smart suited team who prove that when service is really good, you barely notice it.

In accordance with the fashions of this scattered, unpredictable, increasingly stratified dining age, there is a little something for everyone at the Chef’s table.
