Join James Beard Award-winning chef Marcus Samuelsson, proprietor of Harlem’s Red Rooster restaurant and the winner of Top Chef: Masters, for a conversation about his life and career, with Bon Appétit and Travel + Leisure contributing editor Adam Sachs.
Ethiopian-born and Swedish-raised, his remarkable journey includes a three-star New York Times rating for Aquavit at the age of 24, guest chef to President Obama’s first White House State Dinner and the opening of the beloved Red Rooster, a place where presidents and prime ministers rub elbows with jazz musicians, aspiring artists, bus drivers and nurses.
Adam Sachs writes about eating and traveling and various other adventures. Currently a Contributing Editor for both Travel + Leisure and Bon Appétit magazines, his stories also appear regularly in GQ, Details, The New York Times T Style Magazine and many others. His Bon Appétit column "The Obsessivore" chronicles the culinary questings and unhinged projects of an amateur enthusiast in the kitchen. Recent food stories include turning his apartment into a yakitori pop-up restaurant; visiting mountain-side reblochon cheese makers in Haute-Savoie; foraging for wild wasabi in the Ishikawa prefecture of Japan with chefs of Cook It Raw; a profile of Swedish chef Magnus Nilsson of Fäviken; a rosé road trip around Bandol and coastal Provence; an eating tour of Singapore hawker stands; wandering around Sweden with Marcus Samuelsson and a first and final trip (by helicopter) to El Bulli. Nominated four times for James Beard Journalism Awards, his writing has appeared twice in the annual anthology Best Food Writing.
