Marcus Samuelsson To Promote New Book at Michael's Genuine
|Alessandra Montaito, The New York Times|
Not bad for someone who was born into poverty in Ethiopia, was stricken with tuberculosis at age two, and after his mother's death was left orphaned along with his sister (the two would be later be adopted by a middle class family in Sweden). It's an amazing story, and come next Thursday, July 26th, Mr. Samuelsson will be in Miami to tell it.
The first stop will be at Whole Foods Market in Coral Gables (noon to 2 p.m.), where the chef will conduct a book signing. Then, at 7 p.m., Samuelsson will be at Michael's Genuine Food & Drink where he'll join Michael Schwartz, Bradley Herron and Hedy Goldsmith in creating a wine-paired dinner (the wine portion conducted by MGFD's wine director Eric Larkee). The dinner will segue from passed snacks to a four-course family-style meal that will include items such as chickpea fritters with spicy pickled mango and yogurt, and Berber-braised beef with flatbread and accompaniments.
