Marcus Samuelsson – Yes, Chef: A Memoir
Yes, Chef: A Memoir is a love letter to food and family in all its manifestations. It begins with a simple ritual: Every Saturday afternoon, a boy who loves to cook walks to his grandmother’s house and helps her prepare a roast chicken for dinner. The grandmother is Swedish, a retired domestic. The boy is Ethiopian and adopted, and he will grow up to become the world-renowned chef Marcus Samuelsson.


Prior to appearing in Iron Chef, Top Chef Masters where he won first place, Chef Marcus Samuelson has an incredible and inspiring story worth telling. In Yes, Chef: A Memoir, this James Beard award-winning chef and author of several cookbooks tells of his remarkable journey from his grandmother’s humble kitchen to some of the most demanding and cutthroat restaurants in Switzerland and France, from his grueling stints on cruise ships to his arrival in New York City, where his outsize talent and ambition finally come together at Aquavit, earning him a coveted New York Times three-star rating at just the age of twenty-four. But his career of  “chasing flavours,” as he calls it, had only just begun—in the intervening years, there have been career crisis’s, White House state dinners, reality show triumphs and, most important, the opening of his own restaurant – Red Rooster – in Harlem. At Red Rooster, Samuelsson has fulfilled his dream of creating a truly multiracial and diverse dining room, a place where an orphan from Ethiopia, raised in Sweden, living in America, can feel at home.
With disarming honesty, Samuelsson also opens up about his failures and recounts his emotional journey, as a grown man, to meet the father he never knew. The book is a tale of personal discovery, unwavering determination and the consuming, playful pursuit of flavours, from the kitchen to the world.
