DURHAM, N.H. -- Up and coming chef Kevin Roberts will visit the University of New Hampshire Wednesday, April 12, 2006, for two cooking demonstrations in the Piscataqua Room of Holloway Commons -- noon to 1 p.m. and 7 to 8:30 p.m. -- that are free and open to the public. Both demonstrations will be followed by a book signing.

Roberts, who has cooked for the stars of Malcolm in the Middle and The Bernie Mac Show, rapper Snoop Dogg and the ESPN show Cold Pizza, is a self-taught chef whose exciting style and easy recipes have paved the way for him to become one of America’s next top chefs. Raised by a single working mother, Roberts discovered as a young boy that if he wanted something more than a frozen TV dinner, he’d have to make it on his own. His years of experimentation and willingness to try anything have resulted in a new book, Munchies, and college tour that includes UNH.

His noon cooking demonstration will be with UNH President Ann Weaver Hart.
