Everything I cook is sautéed, simmered, roasted and spiced with my Italian heritage. My mom passed on her huge collection of recipes, and over the years I've taken my experience in preparing natural foods, added an Italian approach, mixed in a musical flair, and that's what you'll find in my kitchen. I raised my three sons to not only love good food, but had them pay attention to what was going on in the kitchen during prep work.
After my divorce, I dated a lot of men, and some felt the way to my heart was to cook for me. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn’t, but it always impressed me.
I’ve produced and hosted a food and music show, Mama Rose’s Kitchen, on our community radio station for the last eight years. On this show I interview many chefs, restauranteurs, farmers, food manufactures and musicians. I’ve talked to hundreds of women about their experiences having men cooking for them, and also with men preparing great meals for the women in their lives.
