NEW YORK-Macy’s Great American Chefs Tour, pairing celebrity chefs of Macy’s Culinary Council with live cooking demonstrations, food tastings and a celebration of local culinary talent, will visit more than 15 cities this summer.
The chefs will include Rick Bayless, Cat Cora, Marcus Samuelsson and Johnny Iuzzini, who will visit Macy’s stores, culinary schools and other venues. They will prepare signature dishes using local ingredients, share cooking tips with their audiences, dish out samples and spotlight the talents of local chefs.
The tour, which is made possible in part through a partnership with KitchenAid, began yesterday in Seattle, and will continue through mid-July. Other cities on the tour will include San Francisco, Los Angeles, Houston, New Orleans, Miami, New York City, Detroit and Minneapolis. The tour will also air on public-television stations nationwide in September, sponsored by Macy’s and hosted by celebrity chef and author Devin Alexander.
