Here's a story that appeals to me at so many levels, combining my love of food, royalty, New York City, and my native Ethiopia all in one.

Princess Madeleine of Sweden and her husband-to-be, Christopher O'Neill hosted King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia to lunch at the famous Red Rooster Restaurant in Harlem New York last week.  The restaurant is owned by renowned chef Marcus Samuelson who is of Ethiopian birth but was raised in Sweden by Swedish adoptive parents.  The cuisine at Red Rooster is Marcus' interpretation of African- American soul food with Swedish and Ethiopian influences, and is hugely popular.
