Marcus Samuelsson

The star of 2010’s Top Chef Masters competition on Bravo, the Ethiopian-born Swedish celebrity chef has garnered attention because of his young age and impressive position at the renown fine dining restaurant Aquavit in New York City. Since winning the cooking competition, Samuelsson has gone on to open Red Rooster in Harlem, New York. In March, the restaurant hosted a fundraising dinner for the Democratic National Committee and served President Barack Obama.
