Chef Paris Nabavi does it Again!

For the second year,  Chef Paris Nabavi renewed his commitment to fund all organic seed purchases for the MSGN schools.

Chef Nabavi is a master chef who specializes in Persian cuisine but works with a variety of cuisines.  He owns two restaurants on the west side, Cilantro Grill at 170 Papalua Street, Lahaina (808-667-5444) and Pizza Paradiso Mediterranean Grill at 3550 Lower Honoapiliani Hwy, Lahaina (808-667-2929).

Working under Simpatico Ventures LLC,  Chef Nabavi is a community philanthropist par excellence. His major goal is to get our children connected with healthy eating habits whether it is at school, at home, or in the community. He wants our children to understand where food comes from, what makes food nutritious, and how to grow and prepare it correctly.

Last year, Paris graciously hosted lunch for the West Side School Garden Tour at his home.  The lunch was delicious!  Here’s a photo of Paris talking about his philosophy and how the food we grow must be associated to the food we eat!

The Maui School Garden Network is very pleased to have Chef  Nabavi on the team!
