Lindsay Hunt is our new media intern at MarcusSamuelsson.com.Â She will be contributing a weekly column about cooking through two of Marcus’ cookbooks: cookbooks Soul of a New Cuisine and New American Table.
Lindsay is a graduate of the French Culinary Institute in SoHo, New York.Â She loves food from all over the world.Â From Ethiopian food to Dim Sum to the best biscuits and gravy, she loves to eat her way through New York’s diverse food scene.
Her parents lived in Indonesia until just before she was born, and she credits her love for all foods to growing up with her parents’ adventurous tastes and the bountiful options of cuisine in her native Southern California.
During her study abroad experience in Rennes, France, Lindsay indulged in crepes, baguettes, and creamy cheeses.Â At Dartmouth College, Lindsay studied Arabic and studied abroad in Fez, Morocco.Â She ate everything from chicken and prune stews to a surprisingly creamy appetizer of sheep’ brains.Â Now, based in Brooklyn, she looks forward to traveling the globe again through Marcus’ recipes.
