Posted on July 11, 2012 by
NEW YORK-Macy's will launch an exclusive cookware collection with celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson this September. The collection will be an extension of Macy's exclusive Belgique cookware line.
The Marcus Samuelsson American Table for Belgique collection has been designed with ethnic cooking in mind, Macy's said. "We want to celebrate America and its diversity and this cookware offers equipment that allows home cooks to create ethnic fare," Samuelsson told HFN. "Using this cookware, you can cook anything from a Chinese stir-fry to a Morrocan stew."
"Marcus Samuelsson is one of the most innovative and recognizable chefs in the industry, with unparalleled culinary knowledge and a deep passion for cooking that continues to inspire our customers," said Nancy Slavin, senior vice president of marketing for Macy's Private Brands.
Slavin said the cast aluminum collection, which encompasses a 10-piece set as well as a Dutch oven and other pieces, offers "professional-level cookware that is essential for home cooks." The collection ranges in price from $59.99 to $429.99 and will be available in 400 Macy's stores and macys.com.
Samuelsson is an internationally acclaimed chef, author and philanthropist and a member of Macy's Culinary Council. He opened Red Rooster Harlem in 2010 and has just written a memoir entitled "Yes, Chef." Born in Ethiopia and raised in Sweden, Samuelsson spent his adult years living and cooking in America and is inspired by America's eclectic cuisine.
