YES, CHEF is the heartwarming memoir of the owner of Red Rooster, James Beard Award winning restaurant. Marcus Samuelsson began his journey as a three-year old suffering from tuberculosis, walking seventy-five miles across his native Ethiopia to a hospital. After his mother died from the disease, he was adopted by a white family in Sweden, where he decided he wanted to become a chef. The brave and inspiring story is told with honesty and intimacy where all can see the improbable dining place of presidents and prime ministers.
