Overall, delivering a memoir that pulls on all the senses, from the choices Marcus made selecting friends, his lessons learned acknowledging mistakes, his passion for cooking, which includes a broad professional culinary education, along with sacrifices he’s taken on... like the many people he’s mentored...near and far, none more so than his half sisters, makes Yes, Chef a phenomenal treat to experience! Absolutely redeemable. Highly recommended. Simply a Must!
A remarkable story about a man who came from Ethiopia, adopted by Swedish parents, grew to love and had a passion for cooking. Who today is considered a Celebrity Chef in his own right, Marcus Samuelsson.
It's All About the Taste, the Taste... Learning the basics of Swedish, German , and French cooking wasn't enough for this chef's palate. He wanted to explore the various cities of all the exciting flavors that each had to offer. As he made his journey he would often write in his journal what flavors would be compatible with certain dishes. Marcus wanted to create food so that the customer could enjoy his dish in that moment and not worry about the everyday world,
Reading this novel made me hungry. Chef Samuelsson had a way in describing his many prepared dishes that I could actually visualize what it looked liked to it's Aromas. People of all cultures can take comfort in food. Food is our communicator that brings people together. No words are expressed just the facial expressions of those enjoying their cuisine says it all.
