This year's Chef Artist Dinner kicks off with the culinary talents of Chef Nina Manchev, the gastronomic brain power behind the unique restaurant Forte European Tapas Bar & Bistro. Nina opened Forte while pursuing a degree at UNLV’s Harrah Hotel College in food beverage management.
Her restaurant, voted one of Vegas’ 50 Essential Restaurants by Eating Las Vegas, was also named the Best Ethnic Restaurant in 2011 by Desert Companion magazine. She has also been featured on the popular Food Network show, "Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives" with UNLV alumni Guy Fieri.
The dinner will be an informal affair with food action stations. This will give guests an excellent opportunity to get to know Nina and ask about the inspiration for her dishes. We hope you will join us.
