Chef Marcus Samuelsson was recently in Atlanta with the Macy’s Culinary Council. If you have watched Top Chef Masters on Bravo then you know Marcus.


Internationally-acclaimed chef, restaurateur, philanthropist and cookbook author Marcus Samuelsson is the youngest chef to ever achieve two 3-star reviews from The New York Times. Chef Samuelsson is the Season 2 winner on Bravo’s Top Chef Masters. His NYC hotspot, Red Rooster Harlem, has maintained a 2-star review from The New York Times since its opening. Chef Samuelsson has also planned and executed a state dinner for the Obama Administration, and hosted the President in his restaurant.

Chef Marcus gave fabulous demonstrations plus shared several recipes of game day food and tips for preparing a Super Bowl spread. The best is that we actually got to try his recipes and they were wonderful. We actually made his fried chicken a few days later and my family loved it!

    I love! My daughter is 13 and has been really into the Food Network since she was about 4, and wants to be a chef. Honestly, I am one of those boring cooks that LIKES to cook, LOVES to bake, but am boring in that I make things over and over. My daughter Morgan watches the various chefs and started to collect cookbooks. She is def a foodie! I love how the new chefs are inspiring our youth…to not only cook but to try new things and to eat healthier, and to allow the passion of food, cooking and baking into their busy day!
