Throughout May, Macy’s will host in-store culinary events with chef Katie Chin as the retailer celebrates Asian Pacific American Heritage Month.
During events to be held at six Macy’s stores across the country, Chin will highlight the Asian food experience through cooking demos, tips for setting the table, and more. She will also discuss the importance of her heritage and its specific influence on her culinary style. Of Chinese descent, Chin has been internationally celebrated for her presence in the culinary and entertainment industries, Macy’s said.
“Katie Chin offers a unique and celebrated take on Asian cuisine, and we are excited to share her story and expertise with Macy’s customers,” said Dineen Garcia, Macy’s vp/diversity and inclusion strategies.
Chin recently released her fourth title, “Katie Chin’s Everyday Chinese Cookbook: 101 Delicious Recipes from My Mother’s Kitchen.”
“In the spirit of my mother, Leeann Chin’s enduring legacy, I am so proud to partner with Macy’s to celebrate my heritage and demystify authentic Asian cooking for everyday home chefs across the U.S.,” said Chin.
The chef has appeared on numerous cooking shows including the PBS series “Double Happiness,” was guest judge on Food Network’s “Iron Chef America” and a contestant on “Cutthroat Kitchen.”
Following each cooking demo, Macy’s will host a customer reception, where Chin will sign her most recent book. Plus, with any home purchase of $50 or more, guests will receive limited edition branded chopsticks and a copy of Chin’s newest cookbook.
Chin will appear at Macy’s Galleria Houston; Macy’s on State Street, Chicago; Macy’s Herald Square, New York; Macy’s Montgomery, Bethesda, MD; Macy’s Pasadena; and Macy’s Union Square in San Francisco.
