Read in his distinctive voice, this is a wonderful audio book. I've been a fan of Marcus Samuelsson thanks to his appearances on the food porn shows Im addicted to, and so applaud his generosity with the details of his life and struggles to create a restaurant in Harlem that represents the amazing diversity of cuisines and populations. He describes himself as a chaser of flavors, always in search of the combinations that raise dishes to new heights. But this audio version just enhances his personality. Highly recommended.
