A Visit To Macy's In Aventura, Florida

On Saturday, December 7th, I was at the Macy's Men's & Home Store in Aventura, FL.  I started the day out in an intimate event with four Make-A-Wish children and their families.  Together, we made (and ate!) holiday popcorn balls, wrote letters to Santa, and celebrated the season.  I then hosted a cooking demonstration with Thomas Joseph, Director of Food Development at MSLO, showing how to use some of the products from the Macy’s Martha Stewart Collection to make a perfect holiday brunch, based on my column in the December issue of Martha Stewart Living (page 141).  We made Mulled Blood Orange Punch, Buckwheat Crepes with Mushroom filling, Citrus Salad with Pomegranate Seeds, Poppy-Seed Cookies with Meyer Lemon Curd, and Swiss Meringue.  More than two-hundred people came to the demo!  Everyone who purchased $50 of Martha Stewart products received a copy of my newest book, Martha Stewart Cakes, and a $10 Macy’s gift card.  Following the cooking demo, I signed books for those who received one of my cakes book.  It’s always great meeting my public and I had a fun time.
