Marcus Samuelsson
Yes, Chef: A Memoir

Yes, Chef: A Memoir

World-renowned chef Marcus Samuelsson went from helping in his grandmother's kitchen to cooking in some of the most cut-throat restaurants in the world. Ethiopian and adopted by a white Swedish family when he was three, he shares how his Scandinavian heritage influenced his cooking style, as well as how he ultimately drew in African influences and advocates for recognition of African cuisine. He shares honestly about the ups and downs of the food world and how it made him the person he is today. Ruth Reichl praises this one as "Such an interesting life, told with touching modesty and remarkable candor."
