The Singleton curated a culinary experience for guests in collaboration with Jiko Restaurant located at the Tribe Hotel, Nairobi.

The experience was a feast for the senses, featuring an expertly crafted 5-course menu by The Tribe Hotel’s Executive Chef, Mohamed Yakat Ali.

The cuisine was a seamless blend of food from across the African continent infused with The Singleton whisky curated by The Singleton’s team and the restaurant’s executive chef.

“Our commitment to delicious discoveries defines this property. We start this journey of cuisine exploration with a promise and dedication to elevating Kenya’s dining experience.

“We are excited to inspire guests to savour every bite, every sip, whilst fully enjoying every moment and reminiscing pleasant memories,” said Wangeci Gakenia, Brand Manager, The Singleton.

Executive Chef Mohammed, whose culinary experience is inspired by his childhood at the Kenyan coast, his Pakistani heritage and his vast global culinary experience, shared how the five–course meal came together.

“My goal when I make any dish is to trigger a childhood memory through great taste. Jiko believes in going back to the roots to create culinary fusion combinations that leave a mark of great taste, memory, and wonder,” he said.

On the menu

The expertly crafted menu highlighted the whisky’s versatility with vegetarian and non – vegetarian dishes.

Akara bean fritters, a delightful and subtly spicy amuse-bouche, kicked off the meal with wonderful hints of ginger and smoky tomato.

A duck dish, elevated with a Yassa spice rub that echoed the oaky notes of the Singleton offered a classic pairing for the diners while vegetarians were treated to a unique twist on cauliflower, with a smoky Suya roast.

A rich and complex 7-hour braised Berbere beef was presented alongside a more mature Singleton drink which resulted in a perfect harmony that highlighted the whisky’s ability to complement both light and robust dishes.

The meal closed with a vegan dessert; a lavender-infused chocolate panacotta with a base of Teff.

The event marks a significant milestone in Kenya’s culinary world, whilst reaffirming The Singleton’s brand commitment to excellence and inspiring consumers to enjoy life’s moments.
