With Thanksgiving this week, it’s the perfect chance for men to practice their hand at cooking; celebrity chef and restaurateur Marcus Samuelsson offers a resource for men on how to whip up more than just PB&J
Marcus Samuelsson wants more guys in the kitchen. With his new site, FoodRepublic.com, the Harlem-based cook is encouraging more men to don the aprons and get their hands dirty. “Almost the way GQ taught us about style 20-30 years ago,” Samuelsson says, “Food Republic guides the men to be confident in the kitchen.”
Watch Samuelsson talk more about Food Republic, plus how global cuisine affects his menu:
Samuelsson, known throughout the world for his culinary prowess and owner of Harlem’s Red Rooster, is also grateful to America. He is
influenced by his cultural heritage – a mix of Ethiopian and Swedish – but credits America for his success in this industry.
“What I love about America is it’s very welcoming to immigrants – it’s very welcoming to new ideas,” he says. ”This is a country where there’s a line out the door where people want to come for me to cook an be inspired. That’s an incredible story.”
