Synopses & Reviews
When Marcus Samuelsson—who was born in Ethiopia and raised in Sweden—came to the United States in 1991, it was supposed to be for just nine months.

A passionate tribute to the new American table
"I was born in Ethiopia and raised in Sweden, but there's a reason why I've chosen America as the place I want to live. With New American Table, I celebrate both the regional American cooking that I've grown to know and love, and the diverse ethnic-driven cuisine I've found in this country. As I share my experiences as an American immigrant, I pay tribute to all of the immigrant groups who have come here and shared their foods and traditions to create an exciting, thrilling, and wholly original cuisine."
