Marcus Samuelsson

Marcus Samuelsson is the chef and co-owner of Aquavit, a restaurant offering innovative interpretations of classic Scandinavian cuisine that marries the traditional with the contemporary. He is also the Culinary Director of Riingo, the American-Japanese fusion restaurant that opened in 2004. He was the youngest chef ever to receive a three-star review in The New York Times from Ruth Reichl in 1995 and in 2001, Aquavit again received three stars from restaurant critic William Grimes. Born in Ethiopia in 1970, Samuelsson was orphaned at the age of three when his parents fell victim to a tuberculosis epidemic that raged through his homeland. He and his sister found refuge at a Swedish field hospital in nearby Addis Ababa, where they were taken in by a nurse who arranged for their adoption by a young Swedish couple from Goteborg, Sweden. In his new book, "The Soul of a New Cuisine" Samuelsson explores the rich culinary traditions of Africa.
