    A Fascinating Story about a Fascinating Chef

    I have always been intrigued by Marcus Samuelsson; when watching him on the Food Network, I'd always hear his accent and wonder where he was from. When I found out that he was Swedish but was born and adopted out of Ethiopia, I knew that he'd have an interesting story to tell. I admire his cooking skills, love for food, and commitment to elevating Harlem cuisine, but he has by far the most colorful personal story out of all the celebrity chefs out there. A most enjoyable read and a great journey into a man's life.

    I read this book as a food lover and fan of the chef, but his life and journey are so unique and moving that I think anyone would enjoy this!

    Good Read

    I enjoyed Marcus Samuelsson's book. I had been intrigued by watching him as a judge on "Chopped" and wanted to know more about the "Ethiopian/Swedish" man. He has had a very interesting life so far.

    Enjoyed this book but

    Found it difficult to forget the way he just ran after his own dreams leaving his own child behind. Kind of ruined my opinion of him. Especially considering the personal attention and love he was given by his adoptive family. Every man for himself i guess and just ask for forgiveness later...figures.
