If you’re an avid farmers market shopper and celebrity chef devotee, Macy’s Great American Chefs Tour is worth knowing about. Starting today in Seattle with the awesome Tom Douglas, chefs from Macy’s Culinary Council will begin a local food-focused road trip. As the tour travels from city to city the celebrity chefs will seek out their area’s best markets and lead cooking demonstrations with the ingredients they’ve found. In other words, let Rick Bayless show you where to shop in San Francisco, Cat Cora in LA, Food Republic co-founder Marcus Samuelsson in New York and more.
The tour will continue through mid-July and if you go to see the chefs you’ll be rewarded with samples of their locavore creations. But don’t despair if your city isn’t one of the 15 stops — all of the activity will be aired in 26 epidsodes on public television in September.
