Meet the Food Gal at Macy’s San Francisco

I liken this to a boxer braving his first bout in — of all places — Madison Square Garden.

But that’s what yours truly will be doing at 2 p.m. June 11, when I do my first cooking demo ever: At Macy’s. Union Square. In the heart of San Francisco.


Yes, the gleaming kitchen in the Cellar at Macy’s, which has hosted some of the best chefs in the country, will be the setting for my debut cooking demo.

I’ve been training hard for it, putting in extra hours at the stove at home, and doing Jumping Jacks in front of the cutting board. I hope you’ll come out to cheer me on at this free event. Or even bring some smelling salts in case I pass out.

Chef Earl Shaddix of All-Clad will join me in the kitchen to make sure I do Macy’s proud.

I’ll be showing you how to make one of my favorite dishes of all time — my late-Mom’s tomato beef chow mein. And yes, there will be tastes afterward. How’s that for a bribe to entice you to attend?

    Your Mother’s recipe sounds absolutely delicious! I have been attending the Cellar at Macy’s events and have enjoyed the presenters, food and networking with the attendees. I think you will enjoy presenting your Mother’s Tomato Beef Chow Mein to a very enthusiastic audience.

    How awesome for you. I’ve made your mom’s most-delicious chow mein, and I cannot wait to sample your take on this most-yummy recipe.
    And I also can’t wait to see the ad/your picture run in my copy of the San Jose Mercury News.
