Everyday at The Brooks Group is an adventure; whether there is a morning cook-off on the Today Show, a makeover on GMA, a Top Chef Duels party to attend, or a photo shoot for a magazine… no day is the same.

Last week was an exciting mix of meetings and appearances in NYC.



Bri, Rebecca, and the Brookette’s spent the day with Andrew, host of Bizarre Foods America on Travel Channel, visiting various publishing houses to exclusively share a first look at his new product line. Finding time for fun between business talk, Andrew showed the editors that not only is his tagine great for cooking, but it also can be used as fabulous head piece. Don’t you agree?


America’s favorite chocolatier, Jacques Torres, starts the day off with a toast to TLC’s Next Great Baker, which he is guest judging this season. Jacques then showed us the best way to celebrate National Milk Chocolate Day on the TODAY Show with bark, lollipops, and chocolate-covered cereal. Of course, we raided the counter for chocolate goodies to take home. #Guilty          


Curtis Stone, celebrity chef and TV host of the new Bravo series Top Chef Duels, participated in his own heated cook-off against co-host Gail Simmons on the TODAY Show. He took a moment to step away from the kitchen to take a #selfie with the crowd. 


Egypt Sherrod, host of Property Virgins on HGTV, visited NYC to talk all things real estate with Fox News Magazine, WPIX 11, and Arise TV. Not only is she an expert in real estate and interior design, but she also shared the Arise viewer how in tune she is with celebrity news.


Who better to teach how to create the digital home of your dreams than Maxwell Ryan, founder of Apartment Therapy?  Last week Maxwell visited the 5th Ave Apple Store to give tips and tricks for creating functional and fabulous small spaces using the latest tech gadgets and accessories. 


Jackson Galaxy, host of My Cat from Hell on Animal Planet, had a busy week with a photo shoot for Animal Fair magazine, a public Cats R Cool workshop at the North Shore Animal League, and an interview with Sirius XM TapouT. Amid his chaotic schedule, Jackson found time to hang with the cat of the house, Pascha, at the Animal Fair magazine photo shoot.


Gretta, style and beauty expert, led her Super Star Beauty Squad- Mally Roncal and Ted Gibson for a “Lose 10 Years in 60 Minutes” makeover series on Good Morning America. The team worked their magic transforming a mom that lost 150 pounds into a confident brand new woman #tenyearsyounger.


Judy Joo, one of UK's Iron Chef and host of Korean Food Made Simple on Cooking Channel, stopped in for a visit at the office before heading off to shoot with Asia World Media and The Daily Meal.
