Renowned chef Marcus Samuelsson is coming to LIVE this fall! He’ll be talking about his new book Yes, Chef, which chronicles his remarkable journey from learning how to cook in his adoptive grandmother’s humble kitchen in Sweden to international acclaim as an accomplished chef. To hold you over until then, here’s an article Samuelsson wrote for The Huffington Post about making food both healthy and delicious:
“For me personally, I often look to global cuisine and ingredients to help make delicious and nutritious meals. I am always shocked that people in second and third world countries living on very low incomes are often are eating meals that are far healthier (and tastier in my opinion!) than what we eat in America. I’m constantly experimenting with different combinations in my kitchen to replicate this way of eating. Lately, I’ve been experimenting with ramen and created a noodle made from teff, a delicious food grain that is very important in Ethiopia because it’s used to make injera, the flatbread Ethiopians eat with every meal. I could tell you how nutritious it is, but that’s not the point. If you eat a bowl, you will find it equally if not more tasty and fulfilling than that burger and fries. Also, by continuing to surprise your taste buds you won’t need to overeat — you’ll just be looking forward to the next innovation on your plate.”
