Tonight, I was watching, "Chopped" on the food network. One of the guests was Marcus Samuelsson, who was introduced as an expert on Scandanavian quisine. The thing is, he looked Ethiopian to me. With a name like Samuelsson, I knew that there had to be a Scandanavian there, somewhere, but I didn't think he looked like he could be biracial. So, I figured he must have been adopted. I looked, and he was born in Ethiopia and adopted at age three, with his sister, and raised in Sweden.
