He then travels the world, ultimately creating a unique style blending Swedish, French, and African cuisines.

Also shared are his personal triumphs and failures, including his abandonment by his birth father, his abandonment of his own child, his later attempt to correct that mistake, and his own reconnect ion with his father and his Ethiopian roots.
