Sure, you can bring the kids (that's who the demo is for, after all), but we won't blame you for snuggling up to the Ethiopian-Swedish chef himself for an adults-only solo selfie.

At 3 p.m. tomorrow, the Macy's Culinary Council is bringing Samuelsson to cook for an audience of kiddos and have a meet and greet with the Chopped chef-judge.

He'll also share stores from his 2013 memoir, Yes, Chef, which was really excellent and we highly recommend it — especially on audiobook because of Samuelsson's swoon-worthy accent.

Samuelsson is the executive chef and owner of Red Rooster in Harlem, New York. By spending $35 in the home goods department at Macy's, you'll get a $10 gift card and choice of either Make It Messy or the Red Rooster Cookbook.
