YES, CHEF A Memoir

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Marcus Samuelsson

Biography & Memoir • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Marcus Samuelsson's memoir conveys both his journey through world-class cuisine and his journey from humble and tragic Ethiopian beginnings to success in the U.S. Samuelsson passionately narrates his own work, which paints a lively palette of food and recipes and, with candor, depicts his ambition and triumphs, as well as the challenges and hardships he faced. From Ethiopia, he landed in Sweden, and his soft Swedish accent weaves layers of flavor, aroma, and texture as he describes the edible transformations that seduced him away from his early soccer goals. Samuelsson's easy eloquence strikes the perfect balance between delivering a chronological memoir and describing the nuances of food preparation and professional kitchen operations. With deliberate pacing, he shares his artistry at combining multicultural influences in the preparation of food, honoring his diverse origins. A.W.
