FREE Marc Samuelsson Culinary Council Event – Macy’s Herald Square

Thank you for sharing!

Last Updated on October 28, 2015 by Chef Mireille

Marcus Samuelsson is one of my favorite celebrity chefs. Owner of Harlem’s famous Red Rooster here in NYC, he is a staple figure in the New York City restaurant scene, becoming one of the youngest executive chefs ever of Aquavit at age 24. Partially responsible for revitalizing Harlem and bringing downtown people up to Harlem for dinner, I am so excited to meet him on November 4th. Would you like to join me?

I had already planned on attending this event and then last weekend Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown traveled to Ethiopia with Marc Samuelsson and is wife, Maya. It was one of my favorite episodes ever of the show, learning about Ethiopian culture and history from a native, but with an American perspective. For those of you who don’t know, Marc Samuelsson was born in Ethiopia. However, both he and his sister were adopted by Swedish parents when his mother died of tuberculosis. He has spent most of his adult life working and running restaurants in NYC. With his globally influenced cuisine, his food is totally in synch with my palate.

I am so excited to walk through a dinner with Chef Marcus Samuelsson as he shares stories from the kitchen and some of his favorite recipes. The best part? There will be scrumptious samples along the way! Plus, with any purchase of $35 or more in the Home Department, receive a $10 Macy’s gift card, and a copy of Marcus Off Duty, which he’ll sign for you after the event. Join me at this free event.

Marcus Samuelsson is no stranger to success. In 2003, he won the James Beard Foundation Award for Best Chef in NYC and Best International Cookbook in 2006. The bragging rights don’t stop there, either! In 2009, he hosted the first state dinner for President Obama. Raising the heat in the kitchen isn’t the only thing he’s accomplished. He raised $100,000+ for UNICEF’s tap project by winning Top Chef Master’s in 2010. Talk about a well-rounded chef!
