Cock-a-Doodle-Doo Out Loud! Announcing Hedy’s NYC Cookbook Launch Dinner Hosted by Marcus Samuelsson at Red Rooster Harlem (Menu, Too!)

Paying it forward is part of our DNA, so when we get a chance to work with people who live and breathe this approach to life and business we jump at the chance to collaborate. Again and again. After hosting chef, author and humanitarian Marcus Samuelsson in Miami for a dinner to celebrate his New York Times best-selling memoir, Yes, Chefin July, we are pleased to announce that executive pastry chef Hedy Goldsmith will reunite with him in New York City for a dinner of her own to celebrate her first book: Baking Out Loud: Fun Desserts with Big Flavors.  She’ll be on the TODAY show in the morning showing us how to whip up some of the recipes at home, and then no doubt will hightail it in a cab uptown to begin prep where the Red Rooster roosts.

Marcus’s homage to Harlem’s rich culture and culinary tradition about which those of us who read Yes, Chef learned a great deal is the perfect creative coop for Hedy and her all-American treats, and we are over the moon with the generosity the whole team at Rooster has shown us.  Pay it forward…

Tickets are now live online here for the event which will be held Tuesday, October 2 at 6:30 p.m. in their private dining room.   The 3-course tasting menu below (subject to change) is $95 or $125 with wine pairings, which include tax, gratuity and a signed copy of Hedy’s book.  Congrats to Marcus, too, on his latest honor, being inducted by the U.S. State Department as a member of the first class of the American Chef Corps. A cornerstone of the newly formed Diplomatic Culinary Partnership Initiative, a collaborative effort between the Office of Protocol, the Department of State, and the James Beard Foundation, the program aims to foster greater global dialogue and diplomacy utilizing the universal language of food. Now that’s something we can ALL get behind.  Sweet!
