Although born in Ethiopia, Marcus and his sister were adopted by a Swedish family shortly after the death of their mother. The siblings grew up in Sweden where Marcus had his first culinary contact when he went fishing with his father and uncles, who would smoke and preserve the fish they had caught. He was also taught a lot about food preparation by his grandmother Helga, who was a professional chef herself. As his interest in food rose, Samuelsson furthered his education at the Culinary Institute in Gothenburg, Sweden in the mid ‘80s. Upon graduation in 1989, he spent some time as an apprentice in Switzerland before moving to France in 1993. Soon after, Marcus moved to the United States to begin an apprenticeship at “Aquavit” in New York, where he quickly worked his way up and eventually became executive chef. Shortly after, he received his first three-star rating handed by the “New York Times”. At the time, Marcus was only 23 which made him the youngest chef to receive the honor. He was later awarded the James Beard Foundation’s Rising Star Chef Award in 1999 and four years later he was named the best chef in New York city by the same foundation. His net worth was well established.
Apart from his culinary success and talent, Samuelsson also took up writing and released his first book, “Aquavit and The New Scandinavian Cuisine” in 2003, followed by his second, “The Soul of a New Cuisine: A Discovery of the Foods and Flavors of Africa”, three years later, and which was named Best International Cookbook by the Beard Foundation a year after its publishing. However, he didn’t stop there as ,he wrote more books on the topic which include “New American Table”(2009), and “Yes, Chef: A Memoir”(2012). All have contributed to his net worth.
Marcus has also opened several restaurants, and his first one was “Red Rooster” which he opened in Harlem in 2010. He has hosted TV’s “Inner Chef with Marcus Samuelsson”, and participated on the “Top Chef” series as a judge.
When it comes to his private life, Samuelsson has been married to model Gate Maya Haile since 2009; the two married in Ethiopia and now reside in Harlem. Marcus is also an ambassador for the US Fund for UNICEF and is on the board of directors of Careers Through Culinary Arts program.
