The Taste awards gala at the dusitD2 was nothing short of spectacular. The love Nairobi has for the food industry is inspiring. If you aren’t a foodie, your life needs a serious re-evaluation. The Oscars of the food industry brought together foodies, food bloggers, restaurant owners, connoisseurs and Nairobi’s elite business men all in the celebration of food.
From the Peoples Choice, to the Gold List, the results had everyone holding their breath. The moment everyone had been waiting for had arrived. Who would win the chef of the year? Would it be Joseph Anusu from Tamarind, Mohsine Korich from Fairview Hotel, Roy Kinyua of the Nairobi Serena Hotel, Doxis Berkris from the Fairmont Norfolk or Anton Gasnier from dusitD2
As we waited with baited breath, the results were finally announced. Chef Mohsine was the runner up and *drumroll* Chef Doxis Berkris bagged the award for the chef of the year! It was a sight to behold. The king of the kitchen was crowned joy was written all over his face.
Congratulations Chef Doxis!
