The past Taste Awards have been nothing short of spectacular. If you dont believe me, watch this recap of the 2013 awards. This year, the stakes are much higher. In partnership with Absolut and Nederburg, this years Taste Awards have been on the lips of restaurant owners and foodies alike. Who will be crowned king?
With the introduction of the Prestige category, where only the judges can vote, the competition has been turned a few degrees higher than before. This category includes the excellence list of Nairobi’s top bars and restaurants as voted by an interesting panel of judges ranging from connoisseurs, beverage experts and interesting personalities.
The introduction of the Rising Star category as well, has been welcomed by industry. This category seeks to shine a light on chefs below the age of 25 and their cooking prowess. With all the talent and passion Nairobi has for fine food, its no wonder that WhatsApp was included as a voting platform. This has changed the game and enabled more foodies to vote for their favourite establishments. They aren’t going empty handed either, with a return trip for two to the coast and a five star dining experience at the Tamarind Dhow, meal vouchers from the top restaurants and bottles of wine from Nederburg, there has never been enough motivation to get the people voting.
We cant wait to see the winners being unveiled at the special gala that will be held on the 31st of August at the dusitD2 hotel. May the best win! Keep it Yummy as more unfolds.
