    Celebrating Black influence on American cuisine

    Over the course of his storied career, chef Marcus Samuelsson – a TV veteran, restaurateur and cookbook impresario – has always delighted in how our curiosity for new tastes draws us together. “We smile, your eyes get really watery and warm, and you lean in,” he said while cooking. “But when we do that around race, and there’s no entry point, we look down, and ‘don’t talk to me.'” And finding an entry point to talk about race matters a lot to Samuelsson.

    My life in food: Kate Bosworth on cheeseburgers, Spanish cuisine and learning to cook for a family

The first dish I made for her was chicken piccata [boneless chicken in a lemon and capers sauce], and it’s still the dish she requests the most.   Read More
