For over two decades Chef Hari Nayak has been exploring the gastronomic possibilities of modern Indian cuisine. More than just a chef, Nayak is also a restauranteur with critically acclaimed restaurants around the country, as well as an author of six bestselling cookbooks. He has also made numerous appearances on Food Network’s Beat Bobby Flay.

On Friday, April 27 at 3 p.m., Nayak will be returning to the Jefferson Marketplace on the Ohio University Athens campus for a cooking demonstration which will show students how to create everything from tasty chickpea snacks to sweet and soothing mango lassi. Nayak is the Culinary Director for Café Spice and the demonstration will focus on Café Spice’s samples and Nayak’s recipes.

WOUB’s Emily Votaw spoke to Nayak about his epicurean journey to culinary stardom, a few of his favorite dishes to prepare for those with limited cooking means (i.e. college students), and what Ohio University can expect from his upcoming demonstration.
