The Early Show Features Chef Samuelsson

Chef Marcus Samuelsson  was born in Ethiopia and raised in Sweden, and is best know for introducing Swedish cuisine to Americans as the chef at Manhattan’s Aquavit.

In his 2006 book The Soul of a New Cuisine, he explored the cuisines of Africa. Recently, he has become interested in American regional cooking and plans to open a restaurant in Harlem which will focus on fresh local food, as featured in the NYT last month. According to the story, Samuelsson is “trying to become a brand in American popular food culture.”

And, what brands a chef better than a book and TV appearances? Samuelsson will appear on The Early Show (CBS) on Wednesday to talk about his latest book The New American Table.
