For Williams Sonoma, Marcus was excited to join the team to work with Michael Mina, Michael Mina is an award-winning chef, restaurateur and cookbook author whose name has been synonymous with bold food and memorable dining for more than two decades. He is the creator of Michael Mina, his signature restaurant in San Francisco, CA. In 2002, along with partner Andre Agassi, he founded Mina Group, which today includes nearly 30 dining concepts, including Bardot Brasserie in Las Vegas, Stonehill Tavern in Southern California and the forthcoming Margeaux Brasserie in Chicago. His new collection of seasonings and relishes are inspired by the creations he serves at Bourbon Pub in Santa Clara, CA, a gathering place where he puts his spin on classic pub fare.
Also that week we photographed some amazing cocktail and outdoor kitchen spreads, really getting into the spirit of Summer.
