about Chef Rossi

Rossi- yes she only has one name- has been a writer for many publications, such as "The Daily News," "Time Out New York," "The New York Post" and "Mcsweeney's" to name a few. She is widely known as the writer of the "Eat Me" column for "Bust" magazine since 1998 and hosts her own hit radio show on WOMR in Cape Cod called "Bite This", now going into its 8th season. She has just completed her first edible memoir "The Devil and Mrs. Goldstein! "
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 23 years!.

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 it's time to do something different.


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

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

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

The Zagat's Guide has called Rossi "the wildest thing this side of the Mason Dixon Line."
"The New York Times" has called Rossi, "a new breed of rebel anti-caterer."
"Go Magazine" has voted Rossi "one of the 100 women we love!"

Writer, radio-personality, chef and caterer this is a woman who loves to stir it up!
