The Taste

The Taste is Back for Season 3!

By Marcus Samuelsson | December 9, 2014

Tune in Thursdays at 8pm to watch Marucs Samuelsson, Nigella Lawson, Anthony Bourdain, and Ludo Lefebvre as judges/mentors on Abc's The Taste.

I’m thrilled to announce that The Taste is back on ABC for it’s 3rd season! Last week was just the beginning: mentors Nigella Lawson, Ludo Lefebvre, Anthony Bourdain, and I all picked our teams. This week, the real competition begins. In case you missed last week’s episode, you can still watch it here on ABC.the taste

This year’s batch of contestants is amazing (you can get to know them here), and the lineup of guest mentors/judges is unbelievable – you can expect appearances from culinary all-stars Jonathan Waxman, Michael Symon, and Eric Ripert, just to name a few. Plus, we’ve added an exciting new twist to up the competition: a sudden death blind-tasting round, judged by our weekly guest mentors.

You can catch The Taste on Thursday nights on ABC at 8pm , and don’t forget to root for #TeamMarcus!

Marcus’s Meatless Monday Menu Takes the UN

Marcus Samuelsson is at it again.

Chef-owner of Red Rooster Harlem, as well as an avid Meatless Monday and UN supporter, Marcus designed the menu for the most recent United Nations Development Program (UNDP) reception.

As members gathered for the UN Secretary-General’s Climate Summit, it only seemed fitting that his Meatless Monday menu similarly fit the green goals that evening.

Besides for the opportunity to indulge UN participants with delicious vegetarian cuisine, like with his signature Pear Pumpkin Salad with Pumpkin Seed Recipe, Marcus was also excited to promote Meatless Mondays.

And honestly, why wouldn’t he be? Here are just some of the benefits:

  • Studies show that plant-based diets are associated with a variety of health benefits.
  • Researchers have also discovered that a Monday start-date helps individuals carry their healthy intentions for the week.
  • Finally, advocates argue that it’s also simple way of shrinking one’s carbon footprint.

In this case, Meatless Mondays are more than just a weekly refuge for conflicted omnivores.

On the contrary, they encourage us to take a step back, think about the food we put into our individual bodies, and hopefully better our shared physical environment.

With slogans surrounding the UN summit stating, “Meatless Monday Menu: Lower Your Carbon Footprint,” it was clear that Marcus perfectly catered to his meat-free international audience that night.

Chowing down on Marcus’s seasonal pumpkin salad, it was the perfect day for thinking about how our food consumption truly holds greater collective potential.
