Marcus Samuelsson at Macy's

I was just taking a lunchtime walk through the gloriously air-conditioned Macy's Herald Square and decided to duck into the kitchen section on a whim. In the far depths of the basement, I found a demonstration kitchen that I never knew existed. It took me a minute to recognize, right in front of me, my favorite 'Chopped' judge, Marcus Samuelsson, filming an ad for Macy's new culinary program. Unfortunately, this still won't help me get reservations at Red Rooster.
