5 Course Chef-for-the-Day Dinner - Nick Oben

Chef for the Day
Nick Oben
Wednesday, April 6th ~ 7 p.m.
45 per person

Nick "The Greek" Oben learned the importance of good food early in life. His mother passed her love of cooking on to him along with her Greek heritage, and got him involved in the kitchen as soon as he could see over the counter. Family dinners lasted hours, with everyone talking about their day while enjoying heaping plates of food. In college, Nick kept things family-style and routinely cooked for friends and family, experimenting with recipes within his student budget.

Nick currently works as a software engineer, which keeps him busy but also helps stock his kitchen a little better than those college days! He continues to experiment with various ingredients and cooking methods, and maintains dreams of one day owning a restaurant of his own. In the meantime, cooking is one of his favorite ways to relax after work, much to the joy of his wife, Joyce, and friends. For family gatherings, homemade Baklava has been his responsibility for years, and he can't wait to share this family tradition
