A pioneer in empowering his local neighborhood of Harlem, Samuelsson is an incredibly talented, award-winning chef with a background even more exotic than his food. Ethiopian-born and Swedish-raised, Samuelsson is a pivotal name in organic, sustainable cuisine. His restaurant, Red Rooster, is a must-visit next time you're in Manhattan. Don't miss the fried-green tomatoes—there are no words to describe the incredible flavor!
Date-night dinner: You don't want to plan an elaborate meal for date night because you'll end up spending all your time in the kitchen. Choose a simple but elegant pasta dish that you can serve from the table, or why not go casual and grill up a perfect burger? The key is to do something low maintenance that you can prepare together.
Favorite way to sweat: I run at least three miles every day. It;s a great way to stay energized and focused with a busy schedule. I also play in a soccer league in New York. We play in tournaments and weekend games; I've been playing all my life and hoped to go pro when I was growing up in Sweden, before I discovered my passion for cooking.
Food splurge: I know it's seems counterintuitive, but there's nothing better than a burger and beer after a workout with my soccer buddies. Since we play on a field near the Lower East Side, we usually end up at DBGB's for said meal. And it's always fantastic.
