Cooking Through Marcus’ Cookbooks with Lindsay Hunt – Lamb Curry Recipe Included

By mahir | November 8, 2010

Lamb Curry

Lindsay Hunt is our new media intern at 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. She loves food from all over the world. 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. At Dartmouth College, Lindsay studied Arabic and studied abroad in Fez, Morocco. She ate everything from chicken and prune stews to a surprisingly creamy appetizer of sheep’ brains. Now, based in Brooklyn, she looks forward to traveling the globe again through Marcus’ recipes.

Read her first installment of her column below.

Melting-Pot Muse in “Edible Manhattan”

By Marcus Samuelsson | March 9, 2010

This month, I was Edible Manhattan’s featured “Tastemaker.” It was so much fun talking to their team at my favorite Harlem hangout, Patisserie Des Ambassades. From Harlem to Chinatown to Hell’s Kitchen, my experience in New York has been fascinatingly colorful and diverse, and I try to communicate this in my cooking. The Manhattan food world is such a delicious mix of flavors, and truly sums up what “New American” cooking is all about. Thanks so much to the Edible Manhattan team for taking the time to talk with me, and for the great photo. Check out the article for more of my Manhattan inspirations, plus try out my recipe for trout pierogies and enter to win a copy of “New American Table.” Hungry yet? Take a bite out of that yummy bagel with lox on the cover!
