“I am a chef through and through. Everything I do – whether it is cooking for kids in Harlem or cooking in a fine dining establishment – all my days are consumed by food.”
This is a collection of quotes about food from Marcus Samuelsson.
“As a chef, I always have in mind how to properly feed the public, but at times it’s easy to forget that some people have trouble even getting any food, much less adequate nutrition.”
“Like all food, whether you’re talking about Persian food, or Chinese food, or Swedish food, it’s always a reflection of wars, trading, a bunch of good and a bunch of bad. But what’s left is always the food story.”
“I love Thanksgiving because it’s a holiday that is centered around food and family, two things that are of utmost importance to me.”
“We struggle with eating healthily, obesity, and access to good nutrition for everyone. But we have a great opportunity to get on the right side of this battle by beginning to think differently about the way that we eat and the way that we approach food.”
“Without food, we cannot survive, and that is why issues that affect the food industry are so important.”
