The Raging Skillet by Chef Rossi

Monday, June 12th 6:30pm

Come celebrate pride week with Chef Rossi!

The Raging Skillet is one woman’s story of cooking her way through some of life’s biggest challenges in New York City’s most unlikely kitchens. Talking her way into any cooking job she could get, a self-taught and self-made Rossi ended up owning one of the most sought-after catering companies in the city. The book features anecdotes from a life of food plus recipes—ranging from pizza bagels to tuna tartare—to close each section. This tasty memoir shows us how Chef Rossi found a way to pay tribute to her roots while staying true to herself

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.
