Featured Recipes from Marcus Off Duty
"In doable dishes that favor bold spices, such as the garam masala and serranochiles in habesha lamb chops with apple-mango chutney, and crunchy and creamy components, such as the fried pickles served with fish & chips and the shrimp salad atop corn dogs, Samuelsson deliciously showcases his knowledge of global flavors and talent for combining them in unexpected ways. VERDICT Highly recommended for adventurous and well-traveled home cooks, as well as fans of Susan Feniger’s Street Food."
“Marcus is a great chef, a great cook, and a transformative figure in the landscape of American food. Seeing his style and his interests change over the years has been fascinating. I’ve watched him first hand as he eats his way through a city, soaking it all up, mind whirring. I guess this is what he’s been doing with all that information and experience: Marcus Off Duty. It’s fair to say you would always be a very lucky person if you were invited over to Marcus’s house for dinner. Now, with this book, everyone can join the party.”
“With Marcus Off Duty, Marcus Samuelsson steps out of the restaurant kitchen and shows you how to cook the global, casual, flavorful food he loves most. Every recipe, story, and tip is not only thoughtful and imaginative, but also completely accessible. It’s like having your own private cooking lesson and fabulous dinner party, hosted by one of the country’ s greatest culinary stars!”
—- Gail Simmons, food expert, TV personality, and author of Talking with My Mouth Full
“Marcus has a gift to take unexpected flavor combinations and make them sing on a plate. His exploration of other cultures outside his own makes this book an adventure to read at home and in the kitchen.”
—-Zarela Martinez, chef and author
“Marcus is the most interesting cook I know. He possesses a unique ability to bring the cuisine of the world to our family table. And here is the magical touch: He has the love to make it happen. Whether it’s a perfect poached egg, a biscuit, or a spicy grilled fish, he elevates all to an amazing level. Marcus is truly that cook who can transform the basics into the stellar, yet keep it real at the same time.”
—-Jonathan Waxman, chef and author
“Marcus teaches us inspired recipes that are approachable yet rich with the style and finesse that’s been his trademark. What I love the most about Marcus Off Duty is that he not only gives great recipes, but arms us with the tools and tricks to tackle them all.”
— John Besh, restaurateur, author, and philanthropist

Both recipes called for steps I would not have done on my own that took the flavors to another level. The salmon called for a paste for grilling. The pork chop called for a vinegar, mustard and syrup glaze that was unreal.
Both were fairly easy to make. They took about 30 min each. Felt like I learned about flavors from making both. Can't wait to try more!
You are allowed to explore and observe the deep rich cultural influences that went into making this gentleman the great chef that he obviously is!
