Kenya is a multi-racial, diverse nation and traditional Kenyan food reflects the many different lifestyles of various groups. There are about 42 tribes or ethnic groups in Kenya, each with its own unique history and culture, and each contributing to the country’s culture and heritage. The dishes being served at the Kenyan Dinner reflect different regions and styles of Kenyan cuisine.
To set the mood for the dinner, recordings of music from Kenya will be played, and there will be a display of Kenyan arts and crafts. Tables will be decorated with the traditional Lesso, a brightly colored cotton cloth typical of the area.
