I’m not a big shopper. Mostly because I’m lazy, I’m impatient, and Amazon has made me a total hermit who can buy paper towels without ever leaving the confines of my couch.
When there is a deal this good, I get off my butt.
Macy’s is celebrating its 10 year anniversary of its Culinary Council, which has spawned collaborations with chefs like : Todd English,
Marc Forgione, Nancy Silverton, Marcus Samuelsson, Ming Tsai, Takashi Yagihashi, Johnny Iuzzini and Tom Douglas. To commemorate this milestone, Macy’s is throwing a grand bash with celebrity chefs including Tom Douglas, Todd English, Ming Tsai, Johnny Iuzzini and Takashi Yagihashi as well as delicious bites and a champagne toast!
These parties are always super fun and swanky, and usually you have to be a member of the press to get an invite.
it’s this event!
In this case, all you have to do is make any $100 or more purchase in the Macy’s Herald Square Home Department from Oct 9th – 15th to receive 2 tickets to this event, a $20 Macy’s giftcard, and a special Culinary Council 10th Anniversary recipe booklet.
A hundred dollars isn’t chump change, that’s for sure. Even with the $20 gift card back, you are still spending $80. So what can you get for your money?
You could get any number of pots and pans from nonstick to ceramic to steel to anything else you could possibly imagine. You could get a roaster the size of a suburban basement. You could get a whole bunch of stuff in the clearance section (seriously…Macy’s has GREAT clearance sections. I found a few really high quality spans, a bunch of spatulas, a nonstick muffin tin, and a bevy of other items at bargain basement prices. I recommend stopping of here first!) Martha Stewart rubber bottom bowls – totally useful. I have some myself and they are the best, most useful things on the planet, especially when you are grating cheese. Other bowls wobble around, these just stay solidly planted. Hearty stoneware bakeware. I have one excellent stoneware Dutch oven from my mother and these babies are worth their (hefty!) weight in gold. That thing has been through 7 moves, countless Rosh Hoshannah briskets, and more drops and spills than you can count and it’s still good to go. These fabulous organization systems to make your pantry look more like a musical than a slasher film. Anything for the coffee addict in your life.
Oh, what’s that, you didn’t want stuff for the kitchen?
Or, how about some awesome fine servingware? Like this cool 1960s inspired NYC platter? Or any of this gorgeous china that looks like stuff that I should never own because I am a klutz? Or this serving platter that fits right into Shahs of Sunset (and I mean that in a GOOD way…love me some gold)? Or these totally ridiculous, hand wash only, very old fashioned glasses that have no place in daily life. Who would get those, right? Well, of course I did. You know me by now. They are literally the favorite thing that I own. I got those, some awesome sheets, and a beautiful silver serving bowl that was marked down 60%! All of this, PLUS I now get to attend the party too! What could be better?
Only seeing you there and toasting champers with you!
