Last year I had the pleasure of attending the Macy’s Culinary Council Cooking Demo here in Louisville. While there I interviewed Johnny Iuzzini and was able to watch as he whipped up some dessert magic. I’m really excited to share that he’s returning to the Macy’s at Oxmoor Center again this year, and will be accompanied by Stephanie Izard (season 4 winner of Top Chef) and Louisville’s own Edward Lee.
Whether you’re a Louisville native or if you’re just in town for the Kentucky Derby, I’d love to have you join me at this year’s cooking demo! In addition to seeing Johnny Iuzzini again, I’m kind of stoked that Stephanie Izard is going to be there. Top Chef has been one of my favorite shows over the years, and she’ll be the third Top Chef contestant I’ll have the chance to meet.
Chef Edward Lee will be the fourth (he was on season 9)! It’s really going to be an amazing night full of food that will rock your Derby party. I’m still drooling a little over the lime shortbread cookies from the last demo.
