We’ve been pals with Marcus Samuelsson for just about 20 years. He’s an incredibly bright light and positive spirit. And frosting on the cake — he’s an Ethiopian Swede and a tireless advocate for his adopted village of Harlem. We are thrilled to have him digitally visit the friendly confines of … wait for it … Your Kitchen!
Marcus has a new book, The Rise: Black Cooks and the Soul of American Food. It’s a wonderfully intimate conversation about the people and the many Black cooks who have influenced American food, often without credit.
He’s joining us, and our pals at the American Swedish Institute, for an intimate conversation on January 28. Lee Dean, former food editor of the Star Tribune has graciously accepted our invitation to moderate the conversation.
So how about a little ray of sunshine during an otherwise dreary time? You need to join the conversation and get a signed copy of this gloriously inspirational book. A lucky few of you will even get the opportunity to cook along with Marcus, live from his kitchen in Harlem. What? Yes indeed! You are welcome.
