Kenya Gala Dinner
Bailliage of Nairobi
Nairobi, October 19, 2019
Sensational dinner at The Chophouse
" We can attest that the food and wine pairings were flawless! "

Radisson Blu Nairobi’s The Chophouse Restaurant was the venue for our latest dinner which 60 guests attended. The gaka evening began with pre-dinner cocktails in the ballroom’s foyer setting the stage for the amazing menu. A vibrant buzz in the air; camaraderie between members and guests was very evident heralding a sensational evening.

The selection of wines was a delectable sampling from the vast portfolio of the Trinchero Family Estates in California represented locally by Dion Wines. We can attest that the food and wine pairings were flawless!
