Ethiopian Cooking Presentation at the World’s Largest Store

On Thursday, April 26, the audience in the Cellar Kitchen at Macy’s Herald Square, the world’s largest store, received an important lesson in cooking up flavorful Ethiopian dishes from Philipos Mengistu, owner and Executive Chef of Queen of Sheba restaurant in New York City.

Philipos demonstrated why crowds are flocking to his midtown Manhattan eatery. He was assisted by his wife Sara and Asiana Blount, manager of Macy’s Herald Square Special Events, and the staff at Macy’s Culinary Council.

Tadias was there to cover the event. Here are images from the show.

    I have had a chance to dine at Queen of Sheba’s and can attest to the quality and taste of the food. I highly recommend the ‘Yebeg Tibs’. Hirut

    My first and last stop whenever in New York, Queen of Sheba serves up by far the best quality of food with great presentation and friendly service. Mikias
