All-Clad Names Award-Winning Samuelsson Official Chef Ambassador

All-Clad Metalcrafters has welcomed chef Marcus Samuelsson to its Chef Ambassador program. He joins a roster of culinary talent established to showcase the brand’s dedication to the culinary community.

Ethopian-born Swedish-American chef Samuelsson is an eight-time James Beard Foundation Award winner known for his ethnically diverse cuisine. He is the chef behind many international restaurants, including Red Rooster in Harlem (NYC), Overtown (Miami), Hav & Mar (NYC) and Metropolis by Marcus Samuelsson (NYC). Samuelsson recently won a 2023 Emmy Award for the short-form program “My Mark,” and is a winner and judge on several cooking competition shows, including Top Chef Masters and Chopped All-Stars.

“Not only is he a phenomenal chef who has cemented his place among the greats, but he also serves as a teacher and mentor to culinary novices and experts alike – uplifting them to be better cooks and members of their communities,” said Derek Finocchiaro, All-Clad resident chef. “He embodies the All-Clad mission to help bond loved ones through food and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome Marcus to the All-Clad family.”

Samuelsson is also a committed philanthropist, serving as co-chair of the Careers through Culinary Arts Program (C-CAP) and as a previous partner to World Central Kitchen, working to convert his kitchen into a community kitchen during the COVID-19 pandemic. When not in the kitchen, he dedicates his time as the founder of the Marcus Samuelsson Group, a Harlem-based company committed to creating and providing culinary experiences, community support, and entertainment that celebrates food, music, culture and art through media and events.

“Food has given me connection and having reliable, long-lasting cookware is integral to creating inspired meals and memories with friends and family,” explained Samuelsson. “The culinary industry is constantly evolving, yet All-Clad has remained consistent for 50-plus years in my kitchen and in so many others. I’m honored to partner with All-Clad to continue that legacy and help others build bonds through food.”

All-Clad supports the professional and personal achievements of Samuelsson and all of its Chef Ambassadors. The award-winning chefs play an integral role in the brand’s product development and testing and in creating recipes that inspire people to try new cooking techniques and expand their cooking repertoire, said the company.
