    Marcus Samuelsson

    Top Ten Books

    The Ethiopian-born, Swedish-raised chef made a name for himself with Aquavit in New York, becoming the youngest chef to win a three-star review from The New York Times. He served as the guest chef for the first state dinner of the Barack Obama presidency, and opened the popular and acclaimed Red Rooster restaurant in Harlem in 2010. His latest venture is Marcus at The Four Seasons Hotel in Montreal. "Food for me is really a window into our own identity," he says in the recent documentary, Julia, about the chef Julia Child. "It looks back at the history that was here before us [and] it really tells us who we are. If you want to taste who I am, taste this."

    Below are Marcus Samuelsson’s favorite books, available to purchase as a set or individually.
