Have you ever wondered what professional chefs cook for themselves on their days off? Well, now you can sneak a peek into the home kitchen of one of the best chefs in New York City — a celebrity chef who is at the forefront of both the national and international culinary scene — Marcus Samuelsson.
Marcus Samuelsson, Ethiopian-born, Swedish-raised, and French-trained chef and restaurateur, believes in “The United States of Flavor,” or bringing the flavors of many different cultures to the dinner table; an idea that comes through in many of the recipes in his new cookbook, Marcus Off Duty: The Recipes I Cook at Home. Whether it’s his take on Fish and Chips served with tangy fried pickles and homemade tarragon-malt vinegar or his spin on Orange-Fennel Salad studded with crunchy pecans, you’ll find pages of delicious recipes and the stories and cultures behind them.
If you’re looking for an exciting cookbook to help spice up your regular cooking routine, this one is a must-have. You can purchase a copy here starting Tuesday, October 21. And, if you can’t wait a few more days to check this book out, click here for Marcus’ Fish and Chips recipe or his Orange-Fennel Salad recipe…we sure can’t!
