Chef Rossi is the catering director, owner and executive chef of The Raging Skillet, a cutting-edge catering company known for breaking any and all rules. She has earned a reputation as the one to call when it's time to do something different. Her company was voted as one of New York’s Top Wedding Caterers by The Knot for the last nine consecutive years, and has now taken their place as a HALL OF FAME winner!
The Raging Skillet has been featured on The Food Network. The Zagat's Guide has called Rossi "the wildest thing this side of the Mason Dixon Line." The Raging Skillet has been written up as "The new Rebel Anti-Caterer” by The New York Times, and winner of the Couple’s Award for favorite caterer by The Wedding Wire! Go Magazine has voted Rossi "one of the 100 women we love!"
Chef Rossi grew up “orthodox light” (her family kept the meat and dairy dishes separate but ate McDonalds’ fish sandwiches). A rebellious daughter, she was shipped off from her Hungarian Yiddish family to live with a chasidic rabbi in Brooklyn. Feeling restless, Rossi broke free from religious and familial constraints to create a life of her own. What began as a revolt against the microwave turned into a quest to make food that is fearless, fun and, most importantly, delicious.
Join Chef Rossi and me on Tuesday, November 27, 10-11 A.M. CT US. We will be having a conversation about her life’s journey cooking her way through some of life’s biggest challenges in New York City’s most unlikely kitchens, her memoir, The Raging Skillet, and what is the hottest dish this holiday season!
