With the paperback version of “Yes, Chef” coming out on May 21st, I’ve been thinking a lot about the book tour that took me all around the country. At the time I could barely think ahead more than one day as we plane’d, train’d and automobile’d back, forth and back again. But as we prep for Part II of the tour for the paperback version, it’s been fun to think about all the adventures I had with my team who was on the road with me. So much fun, in fact, we did a video about it. Check it out. Read More

If I posted all the pictures I took from the road on the book tour, I would have enough content for the rest of the year. Looking back on all the highs and lows from the “Yes, Chef” tour, there is one thing I could say without a shadow of doubt–it was a lot of fun.

Look forward to seeing you in the Fall!

Scenes from a “Yes, Chef” Summer

Yes, Chef Summer Collage

As I settle back into my routine here in Harlem, I am still in awe of all the people I met and the experiences I had while on the road promoting, “Yes, Chef”. While I expected it to be exciting and full of adventure, I never expected it to be as exhausting and as fulfilling as it was. From revisiting with old chef friends to meeting young up-and-coming stars in the industry, I can only say a big “Thank You” to all the people who made each city a unique memory for me. For the next couple of days I want to recap some of the highs and lows of the “Yes, Chef” tour. Read More

Marcus & Amanda in Conversation

The Rare Books Room downtown at The Strand Bookstore, served as the perfect backdrop to discuss Yes, Chef—the room was nothing short of magical, with a library rich in content, an audience feasting on the words of Marcus and his hostess and a thick summer air that settled over the space causing us all to lean in a little closer. Sitting in front of stacks that included first editions written and signed by Stephen King and volumes of The New Yorker, Marcus spoke candidly about the stories that fill the pages of his memoir and reminded the audience that his world truly is an inspiring one.

See You at the Howard Theater in DC

Yes, Chef Dinner

Every single city I’ve visited for the “Yes, Chef” book tour has taught me something new about the community there. Whether it’s a book signing, demo, radio spot or TV interview, I’ve gotten the chance to meet so many new faces and reconnect with old friends. What has most impressed me is how each chef has interpreted the memoir in their own way, translating their thoughts into some pretty stellar menus. Read More
