I loved that Marcus Samuelsson was willing to share the not so flattering aspects of his journey; the difficult times as well as the triumphs of his career. I knew him best from Top Chef Masters, and to be honest found him to be a bit obnoxious on the show. Reading what was happening behind the scenes while Top Chef Masters was taping opened my eyes and I rescinded my initial harsh judgement of him. I came to admire chef Marcus, and am now rooting for his continued success in an incredibly competitive and tough business. He's an original - I mean an Ethiopian kid raised in Sweden for starters. He's a fighter, driven to succeed, loves good food, and flavor most of all. I thoroughly enjoyed his story and enjoyed listening to his unique accent as he read his own story. Bravo chef Marcus. My next trip is to New York to check out Red Rooster.
His trip to Ethiopia to meet with his father. I could relate, as I met my birth father as an adult as well. So many emotions.
His unique accent.
Reading about the effects of 911 on New York; life forever changed on an unforgettably beautiful September morning.
Marcus Samuelsson is a talented guy, multilingual, a gifted chef, a snappy dresser (love his personal style). Really enjoyed this read.
