YES, CHEF

READ THIS IF YOU LOVE TRAVELING, BUT ARE ON THE BROKER SIDE OF BROKE, SO YOU PREFER TO GET YOUR FREQUENT FLYER MILES BY PLATE OR PAGE.

Mega-chef Marcus Samuelsson (read profile here) has put enough blood, sweat, and tears into his career to last him a lifetime of books, and his motivation is catching. An Ethiopian orphan who grew up in a Swedish household and now pumps out top-notch neighborhood grub in Harlem, Samuelsson's life has been a wild collection of ideas not just about food, but about race, family, and honor. His humility, blended with a raw ambitious streak, powers this book from start to finish. Start planning your trip to Harlem now.

BEST PAIRED WITH GRAVLAX, SWEDISH MEATBALLS WITH LINGONBERRIES, SIDE OF BERBERE-ROASTED ANYTHING.

BY MARCUS SAMUELSSON | RANDOM HOUSE, $27
