Based on the true life story of Chef Rossi. Directed by Ashley Adelman.
When Rossi’s mother discovers the microwave, home cooked meals become a thing of the past. What starts as Rossi’s rebellion against her Orthodox Jewish mom ends with her becoming New York’s #1 punk-rock caterer. The playwright behind the hit I LOVED, I LOST, I MADE SPAGHETTI heads back to the kitchen with this hilarious and heartfelt new comedy, Raging Skillet. Written by Jacques Lamarre. Directed by John Simpkins.
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!
