WATCH: A Shocked Marcus Samuellson Learns That ‘Foodie’ Jimmy Fallon Can’t Chop An Onion
Adorable late night bunny Jimmy Fallon recently invited Marcus Samuelsson, hat-master and Beard nominee, onto his show to do One Of Those Cooking Demo Things Where Samuelsson Happens To Promote The Newest Season Of Chopped: All Stars, as he does. But the real story isn’t about Chopped, or even about Samuelsson and his non-stop style. No, the story here is that Samuelsson tried to get Fallon to chop up onions for a dish called “bunny chow,” and Fallon nearly hacked off his own hand.
“You’re a foodie!” Samuelsson gaped. “I saw you in a food magazine!”
“Yes, I was,” Fallon slurred, hacking sadly at the onion skin. “I was on the cover.”
