Make It Messy: My Perfectly Imperfect Life

Make It Messy - My Perfectly Imperfect LifeWritten by Marcus Samuelsson and Veronica Chambers


Orphaned in Ethiopia in 1972, Marcus and his sister were adopted by a loving couple in Sweden. Taught how to cook by his adopted grandmother, Marcus found a love and passion for food. His rough start in life turned into something sweeter. This is his story of how he became a world renowned chef.

The text is told in a narrative style format that is engaging and informative. The raw voice of the author is told with clarity and is easy to read. Readers looking for a memoir to read or who enjoy foodie novels will enjoy reading this book. This book’s focus on diversity and overcoming challenges is a good addition to any collection.
