About Chef Rossi

Rossi - known professionally as Chef Rossi- is one of the New York catering world's most vivacious personalities. She has been whisking up international fusions and mad theme parties for over a decade. As 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 itās time to do something different.

When not cooking up a storm, Rossi has penned numerous food and entertainment columns, been the regular host of a radio food show on New York's WJFF and a featured guest on The Food Network.

"I like to think of myself as the anti-chef," says Rossi, "No pretension, no complicated recipes, just fun, fast and fabulous food.

New York Magazine agreed when it voted Rossi one of the hottest caterers of 1999.

Rossi who credits America as her home town, grew up in a camper wedged on top of a Ford pick-up truck and had visited all of the United States - except for Hawaii and Alaska - by the time whe was 10 years old. Her wacky sense of humor and international food fusions reflect her Hungarian Yiddish background and her love of all things hot and spicy.

"I think I was the only kid in high-school who had a Yiddish/Jersey/Southern accent," says Rossi, "and a passion for jerk chicken."
