Marcus Samuelsson's Ex-Con Cooking Lesson

marcus-samuelsson-ex-cons-150.jpgMarcus Samuelsson hung out with a group of ex-cons yesterday to teach them about salads and find out what the food was like in prison. It turns out food is not very good in prison! Leftovers get lumped into the next day's dinner and meals are "repetitive" — though they do have pizza nights. Anyway, Samuelsson advised the ex-cons to eat fried chicken with salad instead of mac-n-cheese. Also: "When you cook, think about texture." [NYDN]
