Here’s the low-down on what’s cooking
Try this – passion fruit
Passion fruit is a flavour you’ll come across on almost any Kenyan menu. This coming Thanksgiving, why not add this tangy topping to the beloved classic Pumpkin Pie. It’s quick and simple.
All you need is:
• ¼ cup water
• 1 cup passion fruit pulp (keep the seeds as they add great texture)
• 1 tbsp sugar (optional)
Cut a serving of pie, spread a dollop of whipped cream across the top and drizzle with this deliciously tart passion mixture.

Adega is the sole Portuguese restaurant in Nairobi. Their menu aims to give visitors a taste of traditional Portuguese cuisine with a Kenyan twist. Mediterranean influences are evident in everything, from the spiciness of their grilled seafood to their soft, syrupy crème caramel-like desserts. Adega is Halal and non-alcoholic, but this only works to make their menu that much more creative. Try their deliciously fruity and refreshing mocktails. There is a fully equipped play area for children, so bring the entire family!

“I hate turkeys. If you stand in the meat section at the grocery store long enough, you start to get mad at turkeys. There’s turkey ham, turkey bologna, turkey pastrami. Someone needs to tell the turkey, ‘Man, just be yourself.”
Mitch Hedberg (American Stand-up Comedian)
