Marcus Samuelsson, the owner of the Red Rooster in Harlem, New York, has released his memoirs titled Yes Chef.
Samuelsson born in Ethiopia but raised in Sweden after his mum died of tuberculoses and he was adopted. The chef has lived an interested life with the book telling the story of Samuelsson's passion for food and how it was Helger, his adopted grandmother in Sweden, who started his lifelong quest to seek out a proffesional culinary career.
From learning to cook in his grandmother's kitchen the chef goes on to work at some of the biggest restaurants in Switzerland. He was even awarded a three star rated in the New York Times at just 24-years-old.
It's the story of one mans passion for food and how through determination and a love of what we do, we can achieve anything we want.
