Yes, Chef: Dinner with Marcus Samuelsson on Occasion of His New Memoir

Yes, Chef: A colorful evening.

Update: We had a blast cooking for and hosting Chef.  See here for the evening pictures.  Next time we get to play will be in New York City for Hedy Goldsmith’s Baking Out Loud: Fun Desserts with Big Flavors cookbook launch party on October 2.  Stay tuned for details! 

We are excited to announce a special dinner with new author, chef Marcus Samuelsson in  our private dining room in Miami on July 26 at 7:00 p.m.  We’re one of his first stops in the release of his memoir, Yes, Chef, and were asked to draw inspiration from the book in creating the evening’s menu.  Michael, Bradley and Hedy did just that, with wine pairings by sommelier Eric Larkee.  Each ticket includes the menu, below, of passed snacks, four courses served family style, and wine pairings, as well as a signed copy of Yes, Chef, and tax and gratuity. Tickets are now live here!
