THE SWEDISH, Ethiopian-born, New York-based star chef Marcus Samuelsson is everywhere in the media these days. Just last week he was honored with hosting President Barack Obama’s DNC Fundraiser at his new restaurant Red Rooster Harlem. And on Wednesday, April 6, he will be at the House of Sweden/Embassy of Sweden in Washington to promote his new book, “New American Table.”
In the April “Gourmet” issue of UPTOWN Magazine (http://uptownmagazine.com/2011/04/uptown-magazine-the-gourmet-issue/) in New York, the celebrated chef and his beautiful wife, model Gate Maya Haile talk to the magazine about his critically acclaimed eatery, racism in the culinary industry and what it means to make history.
