Taste the Flavors of Chile at Kent State

Kent State University's Dining Services is pleased to welcome Chef Francisco Layera of Chile to the Kent Campus for the fourth annual, two-day Global Chef event.

The Global Chef Program is a monthlong residency provided to top chefs around the world. This gives chefs the opportunity to share the taste of their country to an audience across various dining teams and campuses. With 35 years of cooking experience under his belt, Layera is very proud of his profession, and he will be introducing the students, staff and faculty of Kent State to the authentic cuisines of his country. The Global Chef event will run from Feb. 29 to March 1.

On Monday, Feb. 29, from 5-8 p.m. at Kent Market 2, located on the second floor of the Kent Student Center, Layera will demonstrate meal preparations and provide students, faculty and staff with authentic entrées to brighten up their taste buds. On Tuesday, March 1, Layera will begin the global event with samplings in the Kent Student Center Lobby from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and conclude his visit to the university with a festive event from 5-9 p.m. in Eastway Cafe. The dinner will be draped in Chilean décor and filled with dancing and music.
