This week has been a particular thought-provoking one. I was engaged in two discussions, one with the James Beard Foundation and one with friends Sanford Biggers and Mos Def. Although each one was in a different setting and with different audiences, both brought to mind important issues that need to be addressed in America: sustainability and social dynamics affecting minorities. It's quite humbling to be asked to participate in such public discussions, since almost every time I also learn from those sharing the panel with me.

I also had a few Swedish friends visit the restaurant today and enjoyed some awesome Brooklyn fare from Cheryl's Global Soul Food.Â Check out photos from my week below and for more photos of my events, follow me on Twitter (@MarcusCooks).Â
