Last evening marked the start of Martha Stewart Living Radio’s special six week radio series, “At the Red Rooster with Marcus Samuelsson,” hosted by celebrated chef and cookbook author, Marcus Samuelsson. This series launches in conjunction with the upcoming opening of Marcus’ New York-based restaurant, Red Rooster Harlem

Promising a lineup of guests from different backgrounds coming together to “bread bread," Marcus’ first broadcast did not disappoint.  Joining Marcus to help kick off his first show were chef Floyd Cardoz, executive chef and partner at New York City’s Tabla restaurant, Russell Simmons, chairman of RUSH Communications, and Veronica Webb actress, model, and mother.

Marcus' guests dished on topics ranging from food to politics and everything in between.  If you missed last night's show you have another chance to catch it this Saturday at 4 p.m. ET or Sunday at 11 a.m. ET on Martha Stewart Living Radio, Sirius 112 and XM 157 or hear some of the highlights below.  Don't forget to tune in every Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET, now through December 21!
