‘Who’s Reading My Book?’ #29: Celebrity Chef, Marc Murphy

Marc Murphy IMG_0932‘Who’s Reading My Book?’ #29 features celebrity chef Marc Murphy.
Marc, my 2nd cousin, grew up all over the world, including Milan, Paris, Rome, and Washington DC, because his dad, Peter Murphy, was an international diplomat and ambassador.

Marc attended the Institute of Culinary Education in NYC and, upon graduation, apprenticed as a chef in France and Italy. After working at Prix Fixe in New York City, Marc was off to Paris and Monte Carlo before returning to NYC and becoming executive chef at Cellar in the Sky at Windows on the World and then LaFourchette. Marc eventually opened several of his own, very successful restaurants in the city and recently opened a new Mediterranean Restaurant at the Seminole Hard Rock in Tampa, Florida.
You’ll probably recognize Marc from his many TV appearances as a regular judge on The Food Network’s popular Chopped program as well as Iron Chef America, Beat Bobby Flay, The Rachel Ray Show, The Today Show, Unique Eats, Grocery Games, The Best Thing I Ever Ate, and several other cooking shows. Marc is also an author and his debut cookbook, ‘Season With Authority: Confident Home Cooking,’ was released last year.
