An excellent memoir by the well-known chef Marcus Samuelsson. He was born in Ethiopia, adopted and raised by Swedish parents, and began cooking at an early age. His base of cooking began in Sweden, and then led him to Switzerland, Austria, the U.S., cruise ships, France, and then back to New York, where he became famous as the head chef at Aquavit. His life has always centered around cooking and tasting different flavors, and he conveys this in an open and easy manner. He covers all his various restaurant experiences, and includes winning Top Chef Masters and his recent experience of opening a restaurant in Harlem, The Red Rooster. The book is fascinating and very well-written. Foodies will love it!
