Reknown Chef to host a cooking demonstration and book signing at Macy’s on State Street
Cat Cora, Macy’s Culinary Council Chef, will host a cooking demonstration and book signing at NOON on Monday, March 12 at Macy’s on State Street. She will demonstrate some of her favorite recipes from Cat Cora’s Classics with a Twist: Fresh Takes on Favorite Dishes, including: Pita Bread Salad, Grilled Middle Eastern Turkey Meatballs with Horseradish Feta Cream and Rolled Pistachio Baklava.
Since making television history in 2005 as the first and only female Iron Chef on Food Network’s Iron Chef America, Cat Cora has become one of the largest names in the culinary community. In May 2012, Cora will be expanding her repertoire to host, as she steps out of her chef’s jacket into this new role alongside co-host Curtis Stone, in Bravo’s new reality series Around the World in 80 Plates, which follows 12 chefs competing in a culinary race across 10 countries in 44 days. Beyond her television credits, Cora is also a contributing food & lifestyle editor for O, the Oprah Magazine.
To date, Cora has successfully launched several unique restaurant concepts. In 2008, she partnered with Macy’s to open Cat Cora’s Que (CCQ), a casual barbeque restaurant featuring her favorite takes on global BBQ. In 2009, Cora partnered with Disney to open Kouzinna by Cat Cora at Disney’s Board Walk Resort.
Cora is the author of three top-selling cookbooks and in March 2011, the mother of four boys, released her first children’s book, Suitcase Surprise for Mommy (Dial Books, 2011) a sweet and comforting tool for kids and parents to use when Mom or Dad have to travel.
Cat will be on hand following the cooking demonstration to greet fans and autograph her Cat Cora’s Classics with a Twist: Fresh Takes on Favorite Dishes , which will be available to purchase at the event.
The event is free. Seating is limited. Please call 1.800.329.8667 to reserve a space. For more information, visit www.macys.com/culinarycouncil
