Fearing's tortilla soup
"The Red Rooster Cookbook: The Story of Food and Hustle in Harlem"
We love a good collab, especially when it has to do with food. This month, celebrated chef Marcus Samuelsson of New York’s Red Rooster Harlem restaurant takes his talents to Fearing’s Restaurant for a special brunch sure to fulfill every foodie’s wildest dreams.
Samuelsson is partnering with chef Dean Fearing and his culinary team as part of the restaurant’s new initiative showcasing the best of local, national, and international chefs. Held Sunday, February 19 from 11 am to 1 pm, the brunch will celebrate both Black History Month and the release of Samuelsson’s highly anticipated cookbook, The Red Rooster Cookbook: The Story of Food and Hustle in Harlem.
Red Rooster goes beyond just recipes, offering readers a glimpse into life in the author’s eclectic Harlem neighborhood via photography, music, and essays. Samuelsson describes the book as a “dive into Harlem culture through food, music, art, fashion, and community.”
Fans of Fearing’s famous Sunday brunch will be pleased to see some familiar items on the menu, like Granny Fearing’s fried chicken, along with added selections from Samuelsson’s cookbook. Whether you’re an amateur chef or just looking to expand your recipe repertoire, the brunch will also offer the opportunity to purchase a copy of The Red Rooster Cookbook and receive an autograph from the author himself.
