Washington, D.C. is home to the largest population of Ethiopians outside of Ethiopia. That’s why chef Marcus Samuelsson ––who was born in Ethiopia and raised in Sweden–– says that even though he’s never lived here, visiting the region feels a bit like a homecoming. As part of his new TV show “No Passport Required,” Samuelsson explores the region’s Ethiopian food culture and the Washingtonians behind it. Kojo speaks with Samuelsson on what makes D.C. feel familiar and how local Ethiopian food compares to Ethiopian food from other places.
