As BUST’s beloved Eat Me columnist, Chef Rossi has been schooling us on everything from poached eggs to tuna tartare for more than 16 years, and always with a dash of humor. But those with heartier reading appetites can now devour The Raging Skillet: The True Life Story of Chef Rossi, her juicy memoir about growing up, becoming a chef, and working as New York’s most unconventional wedding caterer. In chapter after delicious chapter, Rossi pairs bold personal essays with the recipes that play a role in them—like the Snickers-and-potato-chip casserole she made for her stoner friends as a rebellious teen, and the vanilla-infused shrimp she once made for Vanilla Ice. Bursting with gourmet goodness, The Raging Skillet (out November 10) is a toothsome read sure to have you clamoring for seconds.
