Publisher's Summary

Ethiopian and Swedish chef, TV personality, and restaurateur Marcus Samuelsson takes us on a music and food-filled journey to his Harlem neighborhood where he runs the Red Rooster restaurant. This production reinvents the audio cookbook, transforming celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson’s The Red Rooster Cookbook into an Audible Original production, drawing inspiration from the print, but adding additional guests, themes, and elements that are uniquely suited to audio. 

The seven-hour audio project will be organized by days of the week. Every day of the week a guest cooks with Marcus and he invites the listener to cook along with him, listen to the beats that flow through his restaurant—from El Barrio Night’s Salsa to Sunday’s Teenage Gospel Choir—and learn about Harlem’s amazing history, diversity, and current vibrant life. You’ll learn about the Great Migration from the South that brought mac and greens to Harlem and rent parties that helped residents eke out a living and inspired Marcus when he opened Ginny’s Supper Club in the basement of the Rooster—where everyone from Roberta Flack to Alicia Keys has come to jam. You’ll meet vibrant characters from places like the Apollo Theater, Charles’ Country Pan Fried Chicken, and La Marqueta, the Spanish Harlem Market where Marcus takes his listeners as he shops. 

In this adventurous experiment, Marcus will fill the hours with the sounds of his kitchen at the Red Rooster in Harlem, with gospel and jazz, and conversation with friends. It will be interesting, not just to those who want to listen and cook alongside Marcus, but to those who love music and the rich cultural history that is Harlem.
