We've got the golden ticket, or should we say reservation, for all the Top Chef Master fans out there! If you are are always drooling over the mouth-watering dishes prepared on the cooking show, here's your chance to actually savor some of the creations of Marcus Samuelsson—winner of Top Chef Master 2 and owner of one of NYC's hottest restaurants, Red Rooster. How, you ask? Do-gooder Marcus and his model wife, Maya, are opening up their stylish Harlem home to you guys, serving up a "Brunch for the Horn of Africa" that will do your stomach and the world good. Yep, your calories will be well worth it; For a $50 entrance fee, you'll enjoy a mix of traditional American brunch plates, along with a few Ethiopian dishes to support the charity Horn of Africa, dedicated to providing relief for the Ethiopian famine. Indeed, Marcus and Maya (an Ethiopian herself) will be traveling the famine ridden regions of Ethiopia to distribute food, vitamins, medicine, and clothes bought with your contribution (all of which you can follow on Marcus’ Twitter feed, @marcuscooks). Oh, and if you need a perfect Red Rooster style outfit, we've got that, too!
Sunday, September 19 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.l Reservations can be made on www.MarcusSamuelsson.com, and once the reservation is made, guests will be sent an email with specific details.
