Join Marcus at Extra Mooga this Sunday

By Marcus Samuelsson | May 14, 2012

The-Great-Googa-Mooga

Springtime in New York has at last managed to coax food lovers and enthusiasts outdoors and the Great GoogaMooga promises to be the mother of all food fests. Forget what you know about street fairs–the first (and hopefully annual) Great GoogaMooga is set to transform Brooklyn’s Prospect Park into an amusement park of food, drink and music.

Executed by the boys behind Bonnaroo and inspired by world-renowned chefs that make up the Guru Council like Tom Colicchio, Christina Tosi, The Frank brothers (Castronovo and Falcinelli), and Garrett Oliver among many others, GoogaMooga collides the worlds of food vendors, brewers, wine makers and musicians to celebrate the joy of communal eating and sharing creative spins on culinary trends.  Read More

Fun and Fit in the City

The coolest events during the New York Wine and Food Fest that I got to participate in were, hands down, the cooking demonstrations for kids. I was lucky enough to do two this year and the first one was Fun and Fit in the City, sponsored by Target. It was held Saturday afternoon in my neighborhood of Harlem. Three other talented chefs joined me in the cooking demonstrations, Rocco DiSpirito, Melissa D’Arabian, and my good friend Andrew Zimmern. Read More

Food & Wine Panel

On Saturday, I had the pleasure of participating in a unique panel discussion for the New York Wine and Food Festival. Hosted by Food & Wine Magazine, Editor-In-Chief Dana Cowin arranged for me and two of the most talented men in the food world, Mario Batali and Andrew Zimmern, to engage the audience in a conversation about what constitutes, as well as how to create, the ultimate restaurant experience. It was truly great to sit and chat with Dana, Andrew, and Mario. I truly admire the talents of all three and Dana made sure to engage us with the most intriguing questions on how the public can fully enjoy their food outings. Read More
