Growing up, Carrie Nahabedian was influenced in the kitchen by her mother but was also famed by chef Julia Child; she described watching Child as “like watching an artist painting.” After apprenticing in some of the nation’s top French restaurants and spending eight years with the Four Seasons hotel chain, she opened her restaurant Naha in Chicago, which earned both a Michelin Star and a James Beard Award. Nahabedian is one of only ten female chefs in the United States to hold a Michelin Star.
The lucky winning bidder on this lot will get the chance to experience the range of Carrie’s cooking. You’ll stay at the luxury The Gwen Hotel on Michigan Avenue and have dinner at Kostali by Naha, devoted to a vibrant range of Mediterranean cuisine from Spain, Italy, Greece, Tunisia, Lebanon, Israel and Morocco. Your party will also enjoy a tasting menu at Brindille, Carrie’s homage to the classic bistro fare of Paris: from seared foie gras and Moulard duck breast to clafoutis, you’ll swear you were back in the City of Light.
At both your dinners, the wine pairings will be selected by Carrie’s partner, cousin and wine director, Michael Nahabedian.
