Taste testings, staff trainings, developing new recipes… the responsibilities of a celebrity chef are far from your average 9-to-5 gig. Read on to get a glimpse at a day in the life of Chef Tom Douglas, one of the experts from the Macy’s Culinary Council. Between ten restaurants (yes, ten!), a farm and a family, you can believe he certainly has a lot on his plate (see what we did there??). Take it away, Tom!
