Description du produit

Revue de presse

Advance praise for Yes, Chef
 
“The Red Rooster’s arrival in Harlem brought with it a chef who has reinvigorated and reimagined what it means to be American. In his famed dishes, and now in this memoir, Marcus Samuelsson tells a story that reaches past racial and national divides to the foundations of family, hope, and downright good food.”—President Bill Clinton
 
“I’ve read a lot of chefs’ books, but never anything like this one. Marcus Samuelsson has had such an interesting life, and he talks about it with touching modesty and remarkable candor. I couldn’t put this book down.”—Ruth Reichl, bestselling author of Tender at the Bone

“Marcus Samuelsson has an incomparable story, a quiet bravery, and a lyrical and discreetly glittering style—in the kitchen and on the page. I liked this book so very, very much.”—Gabrielle Hamilton, bestselling author of Blood, Bones, & Butter
 
“The pleasures of this memoir are numerous. Marcus Samuelsson’s life, like his cooking, reflects splendidly multicultural influences and educations, and he writes about it all with an abundance of flavor and verve. A delicious read.”—Henry Louis Gates, Jr.

Présentation de l'éditeur

JAMES BEARD AWARD NOMINEE • NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY VOGUE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

“One of the great culinary stories of our time.”—Dwight Garner, The New York Times
 
It begins with a simple ritual: Every Saturday afternoon, a boy who loves to cook walks to his grandmother’s house and helps her prepare a roast chicken for dinner. The grandmother is Swedish, a retired domestic. The boy is Ethiopian and adopted, and he will grow up to become the world-renowned chef Marcus Samuelsson. This book is his love letter to food and family in all its manifestations. Yes, Chef chronicles Samuelsson’s journey, from his grandmother’s kitchen to his arrival in New York City, where his outsize talent and ambition finally come together at Aquavit, earning him a New York Times three-star rating at the age of twenty-four. But Samuelsson’s career of chasing flavors had only just begun—in the intervening years, there have been White House state dinners, career crises, reality show triumphs, and, most important, the opening of Red Rooster in Harlem. At Red Rooster, Samuelsson has fulfilled his dream of creating a truly diverse, multiracial dining room—a place where presidents rub elbows with jazz musicians, aspiring artists, and bus drivers. It is a place where an orphan from Ethiopia, raised in Sweden, living in America, can feel at home.

I like to read books that relate to cooking, and I like autobiography. Pepin's "The Apprentice" was entirely satisfactory, and so is this book, dealing as it does with coming up through the ranks in a professional kitchen. A nasty business, it seems, but for the best, the rewards eventually come. This book introduces the complexity of race and adoption to the career path, and does it successfully. It shows, like Pepin's book shows, that determination, hard work--the "showing up," the "want to"--trump all sorts of problems. This is sort of a "coming of age" in the kitchen book. and it emphasizes the degree of maturity necessary to deal with a professional apprenticeship in a world where the boss often behaves in a manner that would not be considered "professional" in the modern workplace. Really good read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A big vote yes for Chef Marcus! 18 juillet 2016
Par pfh8888 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Quite an interesting story about a person with a highly unusual life: from a short Ethiopian childhood to adoption by spectacularly loving parents a continent away, to the life of a super chef on yet another continent. Meanwhile, we meet a principled human being working to strengthen an American community that has seen decline. All this, and well-written, too. I liked it a lot.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Marcus Shares a Very Real Journey. 5 décembre 2013
Par C Stanley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Success is life is part talent and part opportunity. Chef Marcus shares, in a wonderfully readable format, how he rose from an orphaned child in Ethiopia to one of the top chefs in the USA. His journey takes him from Africa to Sweden, around Europe and finally to North America. It was rarely easy personally or professionally but Marcus shows great tenacity through these struggles and takes every opportunity afforded him to develop his skills. Often at the detriment of his personal life. Marcus pulls back the curtain on the inner workings of the kitchens of some of the great restaurants and behind the scenes we see what it takes to put perfection on the plate - an impeccable palate, yes; but also crazy days and weeks of hard work mixed in with a toxic and egotistical environment. If I ever truly aspired to be a real chef this book convinced me that the cost is too great.
We discover that Marcus is both an inspired and driven man. He was inspired at the apron strings of his Swedish grandmother Helga through whom he discovered the joy of chopping and mixing and creating good food. His drive comes from an internal struggle to please the parents that took him out of a life of poverty and gave him every opportunity he desired. They instilled a strong moral compass and sense of propriety that required Marcus to stand out amongst other chefs in the kitchen. Marcus has an innate ability to compartmentalize his life. When his personal life collides with his professional drive we see this magnified. But, we are afforded a peek into the life he begins to create on his own terms as he moves up the ranks and becomes the chef he desired to be. In this climb he steps back to his roots, re-connects with his Ethiopian father and family as well as with a daughter he put in a box marked "later". As tragedies continue to strike Marcus shares how each experience helped shape the man he is today. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this book - it is definitely a must read for a real foodie but even one whose fine dining repertoire includes McDonalds will enjoy the story.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fascinating Look at One Man's Journey to Success 23 novembre 2016
Par Enjaybee - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Ordered this as a Kindle daily deal, and had to put everything on hold for 2 days while I finished it. A fascinating story of one man's journey from being a 2-year-old tubercular Ethiopian orphan to a "celebrity chef." Fascinating peak behind the scenes at top restaurants and what it takes to be a "star" chef. In some ways a brutally honest book. Samuelsson doesn't always come out the hero. He is ambitious, driven, and single-minded,sometimes to his detriment. But he also shows great insight about the journey that has brought him to where he is now, a gift that may be as rare as the kind of talent he has. I noticed that some of the more negative reviews focus on the fact that the reader likes Samuelsson less after reading the book. Fair enough, but I would argue that discovering that someone you admire has some flaws, while disappointing, doesn't mean the book is bad. The writing is good. The story-telling engaging. Those qualities make it worth the read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great memoir! 3 décembre 2016
Par Jeanne R. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I enjoyed this book a lot. I was hooked from the first page. His life story is unreal being adopted from Ethiopia by a loving Swedish couple. He enjoyed helping his Swedish grandmother in the kitchen. His original choice of a career would have been as a soccer player and he was good but he was not tall. He then turned to food. I enjoyed learning how hard one has to work to become a good chef. His Swedish parents did a good job raising him. He had the self confidence to travel to different countries to train. I liked his descriptions of spices and different restaurants that he either worked at or visited. If I ever get to New York, I'd love to visit The Red Rooster. Best wishes for continuing success Marcus!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Is it about the man? the chef? the balck orphan? ... 29 août 2016
Par M. J. Smith - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This was a chef's biography without a focus. Some chef biographies focus on the people and experiences that shape the philosophy of food; this covers some of that but has concepts that come out of nowhere e.g. farm-to-table rather than their development being traced. Some chef biographies focus on the hurdles between their background and viewing themselves as cooks; this covers some of that but focuses so much on his single-minded determination that the hurdles are overshadowed. Some chef biographies try to humanize a super-chef and their elaborate cuisine; this may try but it does not present a likeable man nor to an extent a man who has matured and become more wise through his experience. The net result is that an interesting life history and an interesting approach towards flavor becomes a mediocre story. Its worth a read in order to fill in the background of the man behind Food Network appearances, several interesting cookbooks and some impressive cooking chops. But prepare to be disappointed.
