There’s nothing more romantic than Italian food~Elisha Cuthbert.

Hello there! 😀 With current world-events, I reckon we need some positive vibes up in here…don’t you agree? 😀 Nothing says good vibes like good food, ay? 😉

 

What do you say to an entire week of Italian Food and Culture?? Well, the Italian Food and Cultural Festival is coming to Nairobi, thanks to the Sarova Stanley Hotel, and the Italian Embassy. I say- Yes! 😀

Last week, Sarova Stanley invited Wanjiku Thuo and I for an ‘Italian Night’ at their Thorn Tree Restaurant… Here, we got to sample some of the foods that will be at the Food Festival. 🙂 It’s safe to say that it was a delicate, yummy affair!!

Did You Know? Italy is regional, and each region has its own culture and foods.

You can expect desserts, different types of cheese, wine…and then some!

The meals served at dinner will be Buffet, with a set, Italian business menu for lunch.

 

Signature Dishes

Some of the dishes on their menu will be served for the very first time in Kenya, with copyrights to Sarova. These dishes will merge both the Italian and Kenyan cultures.

 

Introduction To Slow food in Kenya

Slow food is an organization that was founded in Italy, with a presence in 160 countries. It is the opposite of ‘fast food’. go figure! 😀

They aim to reduce the negative impacts of imported foods, by promoting local produce and ingredients. The Vice president of Slow Food will be presenting at the festival… 🙂

 

Experience The Italian Culture

Sarova Stanley will transform itself into a small ‘Italy’ of sorts… You will get to learn more about Italian food and culture….

It’s always interesting to learn new truths about a different culture…even surprising sometimes!

Did You Know? Pasta is not a main course in Italy…it is actually taken as a starter in soups… Who knew, right?! 😀

 

Italian

 

Furthermore, a prominent painter from Italy will exhibit pieces from his private collection. They will also have two musicians entertaining guests with Italian music all week. It sure promises to be interesting, and I am tempted to go back. 🙂

Tip: Call 0709 111 000 to make your reservations. 🙂


 

Many thanks to Sarova for inviting us on this epic journey for a ‘Taste of Italy’. It was culinary adventure worth taking! 🙂
