New York (TADIAS) — This past Monday on October 19th, Marcus and Maya Samuelsson hosted a special advanced screening of CNN’s “Parts Unknown: Ethiopia” episode at Ginny’s Supper Club in Harlem. The show, which is also scheduled to air on CNN this coming Sunday, October 25th, features the Ethiopian-born couple accompany their friend TV host Anthony Bourdain as he explores their birth country’s unique and diverse cuisine.

The advance screening was organized in partnership with CNN, Food Republic and Tadias Magazine, and followed by a conversation with Marcus about behind-the-scenes stories and experiences. In addition the event included a Q&A session and film trailer presentations by Julie Mehretu for the upcoming U.S. premiere of Difret and Teddy Goitom’s Afripedia.

The staff at Red Rooster prepared a special creative Ethiopian menu for the evening featuring doro wot, kitfo taqitos and fried shiro balls.

“It’s always good to have a friend with a close association and personal history in a country, so we’re going to take a very personal look at that place,” Bourdain says.
