Announcing My Upcoming Red Rooster Cookbook

By Marcus Samuelsson | June 22, 2016

I’m excited to announce that my upcoming Red Rooster Cookbook: The Story of Food and Hustle in Harlem will be released October 18. I had such an incredible time compiling these dishes, and now I’m ready to share them with you.

Inside you’ll find deeply personal dishes, woven into the story of our neighborhood and our restaurant. Though food is at the center of Red Rooster, it’s about so much more than that to me. It’s become a key part of our vibrant Harlem community, encouraging new friendships and conversations over thoughtfully prepared food.

This book reflects my journey from Ethiopia to Harlem, influenced by flavors I discovered along the way. From Pork and Plantains to Chinese Steamed Bass and Fiery Noodles to Chicken and Waffles, each recipe is rooted in centuries of traditions and cultures that represent the sticky, sweet, specialness that is the reason I opened my restaurant uptown. These dishes will bring exciting global flavors into your home, and I hope they’ll expand your sense of adventure in the kitchen. The Red Rooster Cookbook is now available for pre-sale on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and IndieBound.

We are celebrating women chefs in black history with a Black History Month Prix Fixe menu at Red Rooster.

We’re cooking up Blackened Catfish that is dedicated to Leah Chase with Creole cooked beans and turnip greens, or you can share in the delectable flavors of these Lucky Macaroons with duck liver and aged balsamic vinegar, in honor of Miss Adrienne.  Our Beer Braised Pork Belly is served with Lena’s creamed turnips and smoked vinegar jus in celebration of Lena Richardson. All of the dishes are infused with the history of the neighborhood and the strength of the women in our community who have been dishing up delicious eats for decades.

Harlem to Bermuda

What an amazing time we had last weekend at Marcus’ Bermuda with Melba (of Melba’s Harlem) and my friends – the Nate Lucas All-Stars. The event really came together with jazz from Harlem and delicious food prepared with the soul of Harlem!  From Tandoori Smoked Salmon Deviled Egg, to Fish Chowder Bites, Melba’s Fried Chicken, Dunkley’s Eggnog Waffle, and JH’s Chicken Stew & Dumplings – we had plenty of good eats and great company throughout the night!

On May 27th, I'll be opening my new restaurant, Marcus', in Bermuda.

On May 27th, I'll be opening my new restaurant, Marcus', in Bermuda.

Last week, I officially announced that my latest restaurant, Marcus’, will open on May 27th in Bermuda. The announcement was made in an exclusive with Travel + Leisure.

Marcus’ will focus Caribbean-inspired cuisine.The space is inside the newly renovated Bermuda Fairmont Hamilton Princess, and should be pretty spectacular against the island’s natural beauty.  Bermuda is one of my favorite places to visit – I’ve fallen in love with people and the culture there – so I’m really excited about this project.

To celebrate the opening of Marcus’, the Hamilton Princess is offering three special travel packages. All three packages include a two night stay at the Bermuda hotel, a five course meal with beverage pairings at the restaurant, and a signed copy of my latest book, Marcus Off Duty: The Recipes I Cook at Home, plus some other fun perks. You can find out more about these deals here on their website in the Food and Wine section.

If you’ve been trudging through this never-ending polar winter like we have, then you’ll understand our dream of eating fresh, local fish with a view of sparkling blue water. At Marcus’s latest project, a pop-up restaurant in Bermuda called Samuelsson at HP, this will be a reality. Starting on June 3 and running through August 3, the pop-up will be a teaser for a larger scale, signature restaurant opening next spring, located at the historical Fairmont Hamilton Princess.

_DSC1068Proving there’s nothing we love more than some great fried chicken and some cold champagne, Red Rooster hosted a full capacity crowd Wednesday night for a fun and boisterous Chicken and Champagne event. An ode to the original Red Rooster’s tradition, it was a great showing of the community coming together under one roof, complete with a surprise cake for Marcus and a special Bonicella performance for the birthday boy. Thanks to Mario Rinaldi and the Paul Goerg team for their attempted sabre-ing of a magnum bottle of the bubbly. And in case you missed the Chicken and Waffles, Spicy Chicken Wings, Chicken Nuggets with B.B.Roo Sauce, and Chicken Liver Crostini, stay tuned for our next event which will be held sometime in February. Take a look of some pictures from last night’s celebration, complete with amazing jazz tunes from Louis Fouché.

Recently, the R&B superstar John Legend made a surprise visit to Ginny’s Supper Club to share an up-close performance with a packed room of spellbound New Yorkers. Legend amazed the audience with some of his favorites like “Again”, and cheaked in some of his new, upcoming material, including the popular, “Made to Love”. In a pre-performance interview, he shared thoughtful details of his personal life, his creative process and his deep sense of pride in producing a catalogue of music that many consider instant classics. He started the day by strolling through Harlem and visiting a few of his favorite local places, including the Harlem’s Children’s Zone, which he is a huge supporter of. The night was quintessential Ginny’s–intimate, packed with incredible talent and an unforgettable experience.
