Marcus on Chopped All-Stars

What I love most about being a competitor and a judge on Chopped is that being a competitor actually makes me a better judge. Once that basket opens you can’t get stuck on a concept because the clock is there and the ingredients are there and you have to let the limited amount of time and experience drive you. The adrenaline you have every round makes you so tired afterwards, not because you worked long, but because there’s a lot of emotion that goes through your body. I revisited some of those emotions last night during a viewing party we held at Ginny’s.

Tune In To Chopped All-Stars This Sunday

By Marcus Samuelsson | April 27, 2012


Have you been watching Chopped All-Stars on the Food Network? It’s been a real nail biter! In this week’s episode, I finally get a chance to compete in the All-Stars challenge and possibly win money for my favorite charity- CCAP. Careers Through Culinary Arts Program, CCAP, gives young adults just out of high school the exposure to decide whether they want to pursue a career in the culinary field and also helps to place them in internships in restaurants to help further their experience. I’ve been a long-time advocate for their success and I can’t wait for the chance to help them along in their mission by competing in Chopped All-Stars this season.

Tune in this Sunday, April 29th from 8:00-9:00PM on the Food Network to catch my episode of Chopped All-Stars. I’m competing against my fellow Chopped judges which are sure to be tough to beat. So tune in or set your DVRs for Chopped All-Stars this Sunday. It’s bound to be a good match!  Read More

By admin | January 4, 2012


Last night, my Chopped friends and I had a reunion! I was happy to have my fellow Food Network’s Chopped judges stop by last night for dinner at Red Rooster Harlem. All of them showed including Marc Murphy, Ted Allen, Alex Guarnaschelli, Aaron Sanchez, Seamus Mullen, Amanda Freitag, Scott Conant, and even the newly crowned Iron Chef America Jeffrey Zakarian.

It was so great to see everyone get together, especially for them to be able to check out my restaurant for some food and cocktails. Read More
