Group Executive Chef Doxis Bekris of Fairmont Kenya was crowned 2015 Taste Awards Chef Of The Year at Kenya’s annual bar and restaurant awards recently.
Long before being based in Nairobi, Chef Bekris got his start in the culinary world with pedigree. The Runner-up for Chef of The Year for Middle East and Africa for the Hotelier Awards in 2007 spent time as the Culinary Director at The Westin Resort & The Romanos Luxury Hotel, and at Kempsinki Hotel (Emirates) and Swiss Hotels & Resorts (Zurich) as the Corporate F&B and Culinary Director.
