Recap: Celebrating Chefs Deliver Anniversary with Citymeals

By Marcus Samuelsson | February 23, 2015

Celebrating Citymeals' Chefs Deliver

On Tuesday, February 17th, Chef Daniel Boulud, Herb Karlitz and I all helped Citymeals commemorate the first anniversary of Chefs Deliver by delivering meals to our homebound elderly neighbors in Harlem. The day’s menu was a collaboration between Chef Boulud and myself – fried yard bird, greens and grits plus apple and raspberry clafoutis.Chefs Marcus Samuelsson and Daniel Boulud celebrate Citymeal's' Chefs Deliver by bringing members of the Harlem elderly community freshly prepared meals.

We started the day off at Red Rooster, where we announced that tickets were officially on sale for Harlem EatUp! – a new, 4-day festival in May celebrating the food, culture, and community of one of my favorite NYC neighborhoods. Citymeals is one of two charity beneficiaries of the events, including:

  • Dinners: Come Dine In Harlem where acclaimed chefs will create distinctive dining experiences inspired by the unique feel today’s Uptown landscape.
  • Harlem Talks: Panel discussions featuring celebrity chefs, restaurateurs, artists and more, including Citymeals Co-Founder Gael Greene.
  • Culinary Demos: Fun chef-led events to teach you tricks of the trade, new cooking techniques, or how to make a new favorite dish.
  • Walk-Around Tastings: On Saturday, Harlem’s food, art and culture will converge in Morningside Park with The Stroll. Return the next day for A Sunday Afternoon in Harlem with fare inspired by the home of the “Gospel Brunch.”

Overall, the day was a huge success. Citymeals is an incredible organization – I’m proud to be one of their many supporters in the chef community. Stay tuned for more info on the Harlem EatUp! festival coming this spring!

On Thursday, March 5th, join me at Ginny’s Supper Club for the latest installment of the Ginny’s Salon Series. Starting at 7:30pm, we’ll spend the night in conversation with musical talent Terrance McKnight about his experiences and how he is able to keep his work relevant today.

Terrance McKnight is currently the WQXR weekday evening host, and previously the host of former Saturday evening program, All Ears With Terrance McKnight, a show about musical discovery which was honored with an ASCAP Deems Taylor Radio Broadcast Award in 2010. His musical experiences — from glee club soloist and accomplished pianist, to professor at Morehouse College, and finally as producer and host of several music programs for public radio — have consistently juxtaposed the European Classical tradition alongside American classic traditions, such as jazz, gospel, African American spirituals and other musical genres.

Recap: Streetbird Pop-Up

By Marcus Samuelsson | February 6, 2015

Streetbird popup on LES

I had a ton of fun on Tuesday night at the Streetbird pop-up on the Lower East Side. I  loved meeting all the different people who stopped by; it was the first time I’d gotten to test out the recipes for a crowd, and it was great getting to hear their thoughts.

We started the meal off with Bird Broth and Maria’s Tack Tack for the table. Next up, was our Roasted Chicken, Sho Nuff Noodles, and Notti Greens. Everything was served family style. Possibly the biggest hit of the night were the Sweet Dogs – a brioche dessert filled with spiced almond paste, whipped cream, and red velvet sauce.

This year on December 13, Marcus will be visiting American Table Cafe and Bar in Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center to celebrate the holiday. Read More
