I became more aware of who Marcus Samuelsson is through Bourdain, specifically the episode on Parts Unknown where Bourdain traveled to Ethiopia with Samuelsson and his wife Maya, to the towns they were born. There’s not better way to become aware of a place and it’s customs than from someone who’s lived it. I highly recommend that episode!
To my surprise, Marcus Samuelsson has come out with a show of his own titled No Passport Required. It’s difficult to see the show and not see where the inspiration for a show like this came from which I love because it almost feels like it’s picking up a torch that needs to be carried, especially because it feels as if it’s a show which America needs right now.
Created a TiVo OnePass for this show.
