Mark Kaheru has made himself a name when it comes to cooking. He has over the years presided over cooking competitions, but all his skills and expertise have not been limited to that.
Last year, the chef started the East African Meat Carnival at The Gardens, Najjera and last Saturday revellers turned out in numbers for yet another edition of the event.
Hosted by Kaheru himself, he did not disappoint his guests as he served many with the best of East African cuisines, a thing that he chose to capitalise on.
Revellers who attended the event were so absorbed in celebration as they ate, mingled and enjoyed jams by DJs Benon and Cisse who took them through old and new jams from East Africa. Since it was UTAKE night, mostly Ugandan, Tanzanian and Kenyan music was.
The music, which included mostly throwbacks from Ferooz, Lady Jaydee, Nameless, Kleptomaniacs, Necessary Noize, Ragga Dee, Chameleone and Nonini, set the mood high as many reminisced the good old days.
Among the variety of meats served was pork, chicken with the popular Kenyan sausage delicacy, mutura, which proved to be a house favourite. The sight of many having a good time was a clear indication that they were sighing to the end of the January worries.
