    Proud of you Marcus. I almost cried when I heard one of the judge’s comment on Marcus’ Ethiopian dish (I believe it was Kitfo). Yes, I celebrated and did the elilta too. God bless.

    Amazing work!!!!! I loved your elilta. I have been watching the show every weekend, but I missed the last show. I am just trilled to find out that you won. Only a hand full of people are able to give back to the community in need and you are lucky to be one of them. Good job!!

    Epicurean Food Lover,

    I’ve eaten at some of the best Restaurants in the world The best food that I have ever eaten in my life anywhere would have to be at Susur’s. The man is a Genius. When you have other Top Chef Masters saying what an honor it is just to be around this guy and watch him. “I have learned so much from this man”,Waxman. “The man to beat is
    Susur”,Moonen.
