Chef Marcus Samuelsson (Engl)

The Swedish chef, who was born in Ethiopia, had the honor of serving as guest chef for the Obama administration’s first state dinner in 2009. As executive chef of New York City’s Aquavit restaurant, he was also the youngest chef to receive a three-star restaurant review from The New York Times. He has a second restaurant, Riingo, and has appeared on “Iron Chef America” and “Top Chef Masters.”

Behind the tide of African cuisine making its way to the menus of top American eateries is the vision and talent of Ethiopan born, Swedish raised, American star, Marcus Samuelsson.
