Few are going to talk poetically about steak, but in 33-year-old chef John Muriithi’s hands (a rising star in Kenya’s culinary scene who has never been to culinary school), this simple pleasure transforms into something splendid to the palate: a savoury, crispy, well-seasoned and golden-brown crust – the result of natural flavours and sugars of the meat caramelizing in a charcoal-powered Josper oven, encapsulating morsels of juicy beef.
In this latest installment of Tastemakers, Susan Wong sits down with Muriithi to learn more about the man behind Sankara Nairobi’s newest offering, Graze, a New York-style steakhouse in Nairobi, Kenya.
