Kellogg Hotel & Conference Center to host visiting chef Nahabedian

Michigan State University's Kellogg Hotel & Conference Center will host chef Carrie Nahabedian, co-owner of Naha restaurant in Chicago, at its final spring 2009 Visiting Chef Series from April 1 to 2. On April 1, Nahabedian will give a lecture and cooking demonstration of a four-course meal served with two wines. She also will prepare a four-course dinner, different from the demonstration meal, on April 2.

Nahabedian received her culinary training in Europe and Chicago. She spent 10 years at the Four Seasons, most recently as executive chef of the Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills, before opening Naha with her cousin Michael. Nahabedian was selected as one of the featured chefs for the 2008 Charleston Food and Wine Festival. She also was named the Best Chef: Great Lakes in 2008 by the James Beard Foundation.

This year's Visiting Chef Series already hosted Ali Barker, executive chef of The Boulevard Inn & Bistro, Cleveland, Ohio; and Paul Virant, executive chef of Vie restaurant in Western Springs, Ill. For more information or to make reservations for the Visiting Chef Series, go to
