Published: January 7, 2024

Monogram™, the luxury appliance brand synonymous with leading-edge materials and sophisticated design, was awarded a DayTime Emmy for the digital series called “My Mark” with the acclaimed Chef behind many restaurants worldwide, Marcus Samuelsson.

To celebrate individuals who have honed their talents while making a distinctive mark with the passion they dedicate towards elevating experiences, Monogram launched the “My Mark” series. As one of the first guests in the series, Chef Marcus Samuelsson was chosen for his for his eclectic palette, dedication to culinary greatness and passion for mastering cooking techniques from the comfort of his home kitchen in Sag Harbor.

Throughout the series, Marcus highlights the importance of the appliances being used to execute creative dishes and giving him the power cook with precision the way he does in a restaurant, but from home. To achieve this, the award-winning chef depends on a Monogram 48” Dual-Fuel Professional Range coupled with the agility and modernity of a Monogram 36” Induction Cooktop. Awarded Food & Wine Picks for 2021, Monogram cooking ranges embody a lot of what Samuelsson pursues in his culinary journey as a flavor alchemist. As the chef describes, “Cooking is a craft, but it’s also an art, and that balance between artistry, look at the design,” an idea Monogram also commits to with its lineup of ranges that are “Reimagined. Reinvented. Recognized.”

“This partnership with Chef Samuelsson was such a natural fit for our brand. Being able to share his story within the intimacy of his own home is a rare peek into the inspiration of his culinary journey. We set out to share the ways he embraces his cultural background and shares those authentic influences through food along with the mark he makes on the communities in which he lives. It’s truly an honor to be awarded an Emmy in recognition of this unique storytelling,” said Julie Burns, Executive Director of Monogram.
