This past Tuesday, the Macy’s Culinary Council hit a milestone- it turned 10! The council delivers culinary tips, tricks, and recipes from some of the most respected chefs across the country. The current Macy’s Culinary Council roster includes Rick Bayless, Michelle Bernstein, Cat Cora, Tom Douglas, Todd English, Marc Forgione, Johnny Iuzzini, Stephanie Izard, Wolfgang Puck, Marcus Samuelsson, Nancy Silverton, Ming Tsai and Takashi Yagihashi. See if you can recognize any of them in the photographs below.

The event took place at the Stella 34 Trattoria within Macy’s flagship store in Herald Square and was very well executed. All the chefs prepared a signature dish (or drink) to serve at the party. There was enough food to feed everyone three times- I’m nearly sure I saw two giant trays of raw lamb chops sadly vegetating next to the oven. All of the food was, as expected, delicious. Several standout dishes were:
  • Michelle Bernstein- Calabaza and cheese bruschetta topped with crispy jamon serrano
  • Todd English- Red velvet scallops with red soba, ikura, & spiced red miso broth
  • Nancy Silverton- Lamb chops scottadito
  • Takashi Yagihashi- Prosciutto-shrimp spring roll (I don’t even like shrimp!!)
