Recipes: Marcus Samuelsson

We're asking top chefs what they're making in isolation.

One thing that hasn't changed during the COVID-19 pandemic is the need to eat. Remaining at home has urged some to consummate their culinary aptitudes while others have aired out cookbooks just because. 

To furnish you with some kitchen motivation, Modern Farmer is asking top gourmet specialists what they've been cooking while at the same time remaining disengaged. This week we got notification from Marcus Samuelsson, who shared a formula for his Doro Wat Pasta.
Samuelsson is the acclaimed chef behind New York City’s Red Rooster Harlem, and many other restaurants. He has won multiple James Beard Foundation Awards and is a longstanding judge on the hit Food Network show Chopped.

This doro wat dish brings great comfort to me during quarantine. This specific recipe is a tribute to my Ethiopian heritage consisting of Ayib homemade curd cheese and doro wat. The doro wat is a stewed chicken that’s flavored with ginger and berbere. Berbere is my go-to spice blend that includes coriander, cardamom and chiles.
When my wife, Maya, and I make this after a long day, it’ll cheer us up instantly. It can easily be transformed into a kid-friendly recipe if you use half of the amount of spices. When I do this, my son, Zion, really enjoys eating it as well. The tender meat and pasta combine perfectly with the cheese and the cucumbers add a refreshing element that help round out the meal.
