This Thursday, we’ll be partnering with Chef Marcus Samuelsson and Food & Wine Magazine for a #BingIt chat offering an inside look on how chefs are using technology in their everyday lives. Many people, including chefs, get stuck in the same routine, especially when it comes to deciding what to cook and picking out restaurants to go to in their time away from the kitchen. Chef Marcus and Food & Wine’s Restaurant Editor Kate Krader will show how tools like Bing can be a cook’s best friend and how the culinary world is using technology to enhance their profession...

Whether you’re a foodie, an aspiring chef or just love everything to do with food, join the #BingIt chat from 3 – 4 PM Eastern on Thursday, March 21th. To participate in the discussion, follow @bing, @FandW, and @MarcusCooks, as well as use hashtag #BingIt to see the conversation and to tweet along. Be sure to follow us on Twitter before the chat starts.
