Marcus Samuelsson Cooks in ATL for Macy's

I may not cook but boy do I like to eat!  I was double pumped to find out Marcus Samuelsson would be live at Macy's in Atlanta whipping up some Super Bowl inspired dishes!  I am sure you all know Marcus Samuelsson from Top Chef Masters, which he won.  He also was the chef for the first State Dinner for President Obama's first term!  Marcus also has a line of cookware for Belgique available at Macy's!  He is pretty much a rock star!  I was lucky enough to visit his Harlem restaurant, Red Roster when I was in NYC for NYFW last fall.

Marcus is a member of Macy's Culinary Council and did a live demo of his Fire Cracker Crab Cakes!
Marcus is so charming and cute!!!  Oh ... the crab cakes he made were off the chain!  Macy's was packed with folks trying to see Marcus and get a taste of his food!  Eboni and I were lucky enough to get our new books signed "Yes, Chef" a memoir by Marcus Samuelsson.  My picture with him came out fuzzy : (.  Otherwise it would have been plastered across the blog!

You can find Marcus's Crab Cake recipe and more HERE!  Also visit Macy's Culinary Council to find chef tour dates and other special events (HERE).

  1. Love the new blog's updated facelift. I'm jealous you guys got books and a signature. Kinda good I didn't stand next to him for an autograph. He looked at me in the audience and I melted, I would have been a mess.

  2. You look great. I need deets on your jacket and shirt. I want both

  3. Here you on the "don't cook but love to eat" front. Same for me...I mean I DO cook..but I am not so great at it and don't enjoy it one bit.

    Anyway...looking beautiful as always...great shirt!!!

    I can't remember if I told you..but I LOVE the new blog design.

  4. OK, love your shirt!!! Also, the blog is GORG!! I need to check out membership on this Everywhere Society!!! :)

  5. You look fab as usual! The picture may be blurry, but its is obvious who's in the picture! OMG now I want crab cakes! I may have to eat out tomorrow!!


  6. Love the new site! GORGEOUS! Looks like you had fun!

  7. Met him at Red Rooster last year. So fun! Love the top.

  8. Love your shirt & the new blog layout... Hate I couldn't make this event! The food demos looked delish!!!!


  9. OMG! I am such a huge fan of his ever since I started watching Chopped awhile ago. That's a great opportunity!

  10. so cool! and love the new look of the blog too! xo
