As a mom of a daughter with a wicked sweet tooth, I was so excited when I received the opportunity from Lindsay at Everywhere to work with the Macy’s Culinary Council on this post, attend the event and receive compensation for my work. Thank you!
My sweet little Ava has an equally sweet, sweet tooth. This girl can pack away a full container of Nutella in no time all while eating marshmallows and drinking chocolate milk (with one hand behind her back). Thankfully, she’s an excellent tooth brusher and will eat the occasional carrot… but I digress.
In an attempt to satisfy her sweet cravings, we will be hanging out at the Macy’s in Memorial City this coming Saturday at 1 p.m. to get our chance to taste some treats from none other than Chef Johnny Iuzzuni! He is coming to Houston as part of the Macy’s Culinary Council national food truck tour. If you aren’t familiar with Chef Iuzzuni, in addition to tons of accolades, Forbes recognized him as one of the “10 Most Influential Pastry Chefs in America,” and as one of the “Top Ten Pastry Chefs in America” by Pastry Arts and Design. Not only that, but he was the head judge of Bravo’s Top Chef Just Desserts for two seasons. Not too shabby.
So, if you are in the area, come on out and join us. While you are there, you can get a $10 Macy’s Gift Card* with your qualifying purchase of $35 or more in Macy’s Home on the day of the event, a Macy’s ice cream scoop* and meet Chef Iuzzini to receive a signed copy of his cookbook*.
*One per customer, while supplies last, while time permits. Macy’s gift card valid June 1-June 8. Purchase must be made on June 1, 2013 at Macy’s Memorial City. Chef Iuzzini will sign cookbooks following the Food Truck visit only. Event subject to change or cancellation.
