Earlier this year, Marcus Samuelsson, a former "Top Chef Masters" contestant and chef at New York's Red Rooster in Harlem, sold out a dinner at Govind Armstrong's Baldwin Hills restaurant, Post & Beam. And fast. Now he's coming back to L.A. to do an event at Sang Yoon's private test kitchen.

Samuelsson will be celebrating the paperback launch of his New York Times Best Seller and James Beard award-winning book, Yes, Chef. It'll be hosted by Lukshon and Father's Office chef/owner Sang Yoon and Sherry Yard, the former pastry chef behind the Wolfgang Puck empire. (Yard is opening up a bakery with Yoon right next to two of his Culver City restaurants, perhaps the inspiration for the partnership on this event.)

The event will feature Yoon's cooking inspired by Samuelsson's memoir, as well as beer and cocktails from Father's Office and select desserts from Sherry Yard. Some of the dishes that are already set on the menu include berbere spiced leg of lamb with mint yogurt and pickled cucumbers and smoked eel with poached quail egg and horseradish creme fraiche.

The party is $55 per person including cocktails, and will go down on Wednesday, June 19 at 7:00 p.m. Tickets can be purchased here.
