    WOW! WOW! WOW! WOW! WOW! That's what it's all about. Hangin' out in the kitchen, cookin', talkin' smack, learning from the elders, gettin' that education and history. Damn, I so miss those times. This book was just what was needed. We are blessed to have so many cultures sharing their foods and history with the world. Never heard of this dude.

    I thought this was an audio book but its really more like a podcast with interviews and general conversation. I just dove right in with out knowing much about it because I am interested in Marcus Samuelsson, The Red Rooster Restaurant, Ginny's Supper Club, southern cooking and its origins, the great migration, and stories of Harlem and its evolution. If you are interested in any of the same then you will love this book. I thought this was an audio book but its really more like a podcast with interviews and general conversation.

    This one was an Audible Freebie. First, Marcus Samuelsson is one of my favorite famous chef personalities. He is always positive and kind. So I loved that here. I also enjoyed the history of Harlem that he presented. He brought in many different people, each with their own passion for the place, to cover the history and even the present day Harlem. And of course, I appreciated his passion for food and what that means to him. This was enjoyable....so 4 stars.

    Spring 2020 (Feb); I love, love, loved this read. I expected so little of what ended up happening, and was drug out with current entirely. The focus on food, politics, race, class, poverty, culture is so broad and so gorgeous. I was really sad this book started ending when it did. It's left me with so much to think on.

    This Audible Original was fun, informative, and inspiring. Highly recommended if you are an Audible member. I had a great experience listening to this, too because it is "seven days at the Red Rooster" so I started listening to it on Monday of this week and finished it on Saturday! Each "chapter" is a day of the week starting on Monday so that helped to enhance my listening experience. This Audible Original was fun, informative, and inspiring.

And it was. I thoroughly enjoyed this dive into the history, culture, and potential future of Harlem. I think I learned more about African-American culture, their influence upon music, food, and culture, than I did in any so-called history class. As one well spoken interviewee noted, it's "his-story". And now I got to hear it from those who lived it, who were there or growing up during key turning points. I also appreciated how Marcus included the other cultures that influenced the ebb and flow of Harlem. Their voices need to be heard as well and it made for a more inclusive story. I will confess, initially I wasn't certain about the format. This is NOT a book being read to the listener, but it's also not a pod-cast. It's more of a live interview, a live action format, tailored to an unseen audience. It's almost as I was sitting at the next table, the next bar stool down, listening in on another groups discussion. But it's okay to listen in, they want to engage a wider group. This style might not be for everyone, but once I got used to it, it works. The downside of this is sometimes it's hard to hear or hard to listen to because there is definitely background noise. Overall, this was fun, enlightening, and engaging. The daily "theme" of culture, history, food and drink made me want to go to Harlem, to see the Apollo, to walk the streets, to eat the food. If you have foodie tendencies and don't mind an unconventional "read", I would recommend Our Harlem.

    Unique offering from Audible with fantastic production as I've come to expect from their Originals. With all the different people involved, it felt like listening to an extensive interview format podcast vs. an audiobook.

    This was really good. I liked hearing the stories about the history of Harlem. It made me hungry-- if there wasn't a pandemic I would drive the 3 hours and visit the Red Rooster.

    This was fascinating trip through Harlem. The listening experience with the music and the different and diverse guests really added to the story. In my mind I visited all these places with Britt, who would be a most excellent guide! Great!

    While it was interesting to learn more about Harlem and the Red Rooster, I did not enjoy the format. There was too much going on in the background, and it was mostly made up of dialogue, with people talking over one another and interrupting constantly; it made it difficult to follow.

    I grabbed this on Audible because I loved "Yes Chef," and I was not disappointed! This is a feast for the heart, soul, and intellect. So may layers of culture and history go into every segment--and every part is told with obvious love for the the neighborhood. My takeaways after listening: 1) I really want short ribs 2) Someday I must sit in on a show at the Apollo 3) Marcus Samuelsson has the best friends and is living his best life. (Is there any person who so joyfully embraces so many people?) I grabbed this on Audible because I loved "Yes Chef," and I was not disappointed! This is a feast for the heart, soul, and intellect.

    This audiobook, which is both serious and light-hearted, is probably of most interest to those with a special interest in Harlem and its rich history, culture, including, of course, food. It's inspiring to "meet" lots of leaders -- some well-known beyond Harlem, and some not -- from this community. Sometimes it felt to me as if Marcus Samuelsson is a bit too rah-rah, "aren't we all having a great time!" But if so, it's for a good cause.

    This audiobook was a very interesting mix of cookbook, history and travel-writing with a bit of personal memoir thrown in as well. I learned some interesting things about Harlem, its history, its restaurants and also the writer/narrator whom I'd only seen as a judge on "Chopped" before, and about whom all knew was that he was black (African and specifically, as I only learned here, Ethiopian) brought up in Sweden.

I learned some interesting things about Harlem, its history, its restaurants and also the writer/narrator whom I'd only seen as a judge on "Chopped" before, and about whom all knew was that he was black (African and specifically, as I only learned here, Ethiopian) brought up in Sweden. My main grouse with it/him was his completely (to my ears) inauthentic speech when talking to Harlemite African Americans. It's one thing to change accents and even use the occasional turn-of-phrase when you are speaking with others. Usually though, that's a reversion. But to suddenly be speaking what is not another language but more like a dialect felt a bit phony to my ears (and years) like the man was trying to hard. When someone brought up in Sweden or any part of Europe says things like "You was brought up" instead of the grammatically correct "you were" it just did not feel authentic. He made much about the musicality or the importance of sound in food, probably the oft-ignored sense dimension over taste(duh!) smell and sight and even texture. He was right --the hiss sizzles crackles and pops of food cooking are marvellous indeed. But it's precisely because of that--and all beautiful misc he brought into play that made me that much madder. Nevertheless a fun listen.

    Several years ago, my daughter and I vacationed in New York City. On a Sunday, we visited Harlem. We ate at Amy Ruth’s, a delightful local diner that featured chicken and waffles. We realized we were the only white people in the restaurant. We were surrounded by women in their bright Sunday outfits with matching hats (yes, all of the women wore beautiful hats!) and men dressed to the nines, all there for a bite of lunch after church.

It was a delicious and cultural experience. I felt I was transported to another time and place. Since then, I have been fascinated with Harlem. I thoroughly enjoyed this audible immersion into Harlem’s culture, history, music and food. The writer/ guide is Marcus Samuelson, owner of the Red Rooster in Harlem. You may know him as a judge on “Chopped.” In this audible book, he visits with other Harlemites and interviews them about Harlem’s history, culture, music, food, etc. It is just delightful. He also cooks a dish with each one, and recipes are available on the audible website.

    Travel through time and Harlem with chef Marcus Samuelsson and the people he views as the heart of Harlem. I listened to the Audible Version and it was like actually being around the table with them.

I suggest buying both the audible version and the printed version so you get the joy from listening and have ready access to the recipes through the print (NOTE: Audible also offers the recipes vis pdf).

It is an interesting project, especially if you are familiar with Harlem's history. It also serves as advertisement for the restaurant. If I ever find myself in Harlem, I will certainly stop in to try Samuelsson's shrimp and grits with chicken.

My only complaint is that sometimes the background music was too loud.

    I LOVE THE WHOLE THING!!! The cooking, the chatting, the recipes, the history, the music, the cocktails.....EVERYTHING!!!

    Very interesting idea for an audio book. World famous chef Marcus Samuelsson takes you on a journey through Harlem. He does this with a combination of interviews over drinks and while cooking. This was long for an audible original, six and a half hours.

It has rich stories, rich food, and rich history.

    I've been getting into cooking shows lately and I've seen Marcus feature in a few episodes of 'Beat Bobby Flay' and he was notable because of his backstory. He was born in Ethiopia, adopted by swedish parents, and is a classically trained in French techniques.

This was a delight to listen to as just months before, I was on vacation in NYC, staying in Harlem the whole time.

I am definitely keeping this copy as it brings back memories of my NYC trip, all the good stories revolving around food. Harlem comes back to life in my head as I listen. Added bonus is that they cover recipes briefly but refers the listener to his website for the full recipe.

    "African American history is part of the history that drives black diaspora culture all over the world yet it is so hard to find." History is the best gift you can give to anyone. I loved this book, it's story and the narrator! So much history delivered is a fun creative way. Recipes to try that sounded DELICIOUS! Listening to the many contributors to the telling of the making of their Harlem many years ago to now was phenomenal! Everyone should pick this up and read it!

    Got this book for free as an Audible original. Very much enjoyed it although I was hoping for a little bit more of Samuelsson's story because I'm very interested in how all the different cultures that he is a part of have affected his cooking. Although I suppose there's his autobiography for that. I should have paid more attention to the title haha. That being said, it was still very interesting picture of a little of his restaurant and interesting facts about the history of Harlem. Got this book for free as an Audible original.
