One of his six favorite books, as told to The Week magazine:
The Dooky Chase Cookbook by Leah ChaseRead about another book on Samuelsson's list.
I can't mention my favorite books without adding this cookbook to the list. Leah is my idol and my mentor, and I've been fortunate to be able to cook for and with her a few times. The Queen of Creole Cuisine still has the spirit of a woman who has run the kitchen at New Orleans's Dooky Chase for over 50 years. I love Leah and her cookbook is a keeper.
