Take a Walking Tour at Macy’s with Chef Marcus Samuelsson

Hey New Yorkers!  Macy’s Culinary Council is bringing another exciting event hosted by the award-winning chef and author, Marcus Samuelsson coming Wednesday November 4th at the Macy’s of Herald Square.

Chef Marcus Samuelsson's Walking Tour | URBAN BAKES

You may recall earlier this year, I attended Chef Marcus’ event in Brooklyn on How to Entertain in Style and I must say, from a handful of Macy’s Culinary Chef events I’ve attended, Marcus’ hosted event was by far, the best!  The excitement I felt as I walked down the escalator steps of Macy’s approaching the home department into a crowd of other foodies and fans like myself, was unforgettable!  The entire floor was dedicated to the event, a DJ to get the crowd pumped, complimentary 2-drink tickets, coat check and plenty of food to sample from his newest cookbook Marcus Off Duty!  It was nothing but fun from beginning to end!

The best part of it all was having Chef Marcus walk through the crowd and be able to stand shoulder to shoulder to him while he gave his speech; that was beyond awesome!  Bottom line, Chef Marcus knows how to work a crowd!  Not afraid to get right in, shake your hand and answer your questions; very approachable.  It’s his energy what drives an awesome crowd!  An event you don’t want to miss.

Good thing, Macy’s is repeating it all over again!  See details below.

If at this point you’re unsure how “big” Chef Marcus Samuelsson really is, let me give you a little background.  In 2003, he won the James Beard Foundation Award for Best Chef in NYC and Best International Cookbook in 2006.  In 2009, he hosted the first state dinner for President Obama and has helped raise $100,000+ for UNICEF’s tap project by winning Top Chef Master’s in 2010.  Plus, he owns the restaurant, Red Rooster in East Harlem.  Talk about a well-rounded chef!

So are you amped to meet him?  Don’t wait too long, seating is limited on this FREE event and it’s first come – first serve.  RSVP HERE today!
