SUA and KU Dining are excited to be hosting Chef Hari Nayak, Indian chef extraordinaire, for two special events next week.
Chef Hari is Culinary Director at Café Spice. Café Spice opened at the Underground one year ago, making KU the first Midwest campus to host this Indian concept. Chef Hari began his epicurean journey at The Culinary Institute of America. After working in India, he went on to work in restaurants in New York, London and Paris. Today, he is among America’s most celebrated chefs for his unique culinary style.
On Wednesday, April 9, Chef Hari will be hosting a cooking demonstration in the Jayhawk Room on Level 5 of the Kansas Room. The demo will feature traditional Indian food in Chef Hari’s own style. He’ll discuss the culture behind each item he prepares and guests will enjoy samples of the dishes. The event starts at 7 p.m., just about the time most students start hankering for that evening snack.
Chef Hari will also be doing a book signing at this event for his bestseller, Modern Indian Cooking. In this book Chef Hari provides his outlook on Indian cuisine. This event is FREE for anyone with a KU ID.
Then, on Thursday, April 10, Tea at Three will transform into Chai at Three, again featuring Chef Hari. A Henna artist will also be on hand to illustrate the depth of Indian culture. Masala Chai will be served, as will samples from Café Spice. If you’ve never been to Tea at Three, this would be the right time to check it out. As always, this Tea at Three is free and open to all.
Both events are presented by SUA’s Culinary Committee, in partnership with KU Dining at the KU Memorial Unions.
See you at the U!
