☞ READ: Marcus Samuelsson's American Table

After reading various reviews on Harlem resident Marcus Samuelsson's just published cookbook titled New American Table, we were inspired by how this unique work represented the chef's hometown. Having been born in Ethiopia, growing up in Sweden and now residing in New York City with his wife, Mr. Samuelsson understand a little about cultural diversity and wanted to create a book about all the ethnic cultures that are a big part of America. Either be it Jewish specialties, Asian home cooking, or southern classics, America was created and strengthen by all of its various peoples. In a sense, the book might be considered reflective of Harlem's original cultural boom of African-American, Italian, Jewish,German and spanish groups moving uptown up to over 100 years ago to create one of the most famous neighborhoods in New York City and the world. This one might be a great holiday gift for the chefs in the family. Get it at your local bookstores or on Amazon: LINK. Photo by Ulysses
