The Red Rooster Cookbook: The Story of Food and Hustle in Harlem Cover Image

Published: Rux Martin/Houghton Mifflin Harcourt - October 18th, 2016

Marcus Samuelsson's latest cookbook is a tour de force celebration of all things Harlem, as seen through the kaleidoscopic lens of a globally-inspired genius for flavor, music, place and culture. There is so much heart in this book! The Red Rooster is one of my favorite dining establishments ever and this book captures everything but the actual sounds and smells.  But no matter! In addition to spirited, ecclecticly-inspired recipes, you can read short essays profiling beloved Harlem personalities, download Marcus's signature playlists and enjoy them anywhere, or simply enjoy the outstanding photography.  This "cookbook" is like a  transcendant, culinary contribution to Stevie Wonder's "Songs in the Key of Life" album. -Kris' November Staff Pick, 2016
