Take a Food Trip with Chef Todd English and Explore the World’s Cuisines

Take a Food Trip with Chef Todd English and Explore the World’s Cuisines

The 18th century French gastronome Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin once said, “Tell me what you eat and I will tell you what you are,” and the same can be said of the food a chef cooks, as evidenced by the trajectory of acclaimed chef Todd English’s culinary career. Educated at the Culinary Institute of America, and trained in the haute cuisine bastion of La Côte Basque in New York City, it was apprenticeships in celebrated restaurants in Italy that helped Todd English find his culinary voice and passion for Italian food.

His hospitality empire includes restaurants, television programming, cookbooks, a line of cookware, and other consumer products that reflect his distinct lifestyle brand. As a member of the Macy’s Culinary Council, he joins a long list of luminary chefs whose passion for food transcends the act of dining and rises to meet the challenge of teaching American families how to eat better.

Cooking demonstrations held at Macy’s around the country give consumers the chance to learn easy recipes and meet their favorite TV chefs, cookbook authors, and restaurant owners. Each chef shows home cooks it’s easy to provide quick, healthy, fun meals for families on the run.

The Macy’s Culinary Council: An organization that supports American cooks

For chefs like Todd English, their work to help families is made possible because of the invaluable support and resources provided by the Macy’s Culinary Council and each chef works in tandem with them to support the Macy’s Culinary Council’s mission to encourage Americans “to eat, cook and enjoy food at home - just like a chef.” From common chefs to master chefs, each one knows that they are only as good as their skill and their tools, so they recommend home cooks shop at Macy’s for the right cookware that offers value and quality.

And if you love Chef Todd English’s restaurants, cookbooks, and television programs his upcoming demonstration on June 11, 2016 is sure to be a hit with fans. His presentation will tips and advice to help you cook like a pro and will show you how to spend more time at the table instead of chained to the stove.
