Description

In this inspirational autobiography, world-famous chef and owner of Red Rooster Harlem, Marcus Samuelsson tells his extraordinary story and encourages young people to embrace their mistakes and follow their dreams. Based on his highly praised adult memoir, Yes, Chef, this young adult edition includes an 8-page black-and-white family photo insert. Marcus Samuelsson's life and his journey to the top of the food world have been anything but typical. Orphaned in Ethiopia, he was adopted by a loving couple in Sweden, where his new grandmother taught him to cook and inspired in him a lifelong passion for food. In time, that passion would lead him to train and cook in some of the finest, most demanding kitchens in Europe. Samuelsson's talent and ambition eventually led him to fulfill his dream of opening his own restaurant in New York City: Red Rooster Harlem, a highly acclaimed, multicultural dining room, where presidents rub elbows with jazz musicians, aspiring artists, and bus drivers. A place where anyone can feel at home. "'Step up to the challen≥ don't avoid it. Win or lose, take the shot.' Samuelsson neatly serves up inspiration and food for thought."-- Kirkus Reviews "The perfect book for teen foodies and a great choice for others, thanks to its . . . compelling story . . . and sound advice."-- VOYA "A delightful read. . . .Samuelsson effectively connects his love of food to his personal journey."-- School Library Journal
