MEET THE CHEF
Redefining Food Creatively
Coming from an eclectic background, Chef Roshelle Zielinski has always been passionate about great tasting food. Her love for food came at the age of 6. As a child growing up she would often observe both her mother and grandmother preparing meals in the kitchen. When she was finally tall enough to stand at the stove, she tried her first dish; fried chicken and plain white rice. From that moment on she returned home everyday with her lunch money so that her mom could purchase local ingredients to be used in teaching her how to cook.
Before starting out in the culinary industry, Chef Roshelle worked as a waitress and a bartender and gradually worked her way to the kitchen. Chef Roshelle Zielinski began her culinary career working at the age of 17, in a small restaurant located in Long Island, New York. After the thrill of moving up from the front of the house to the back of the house eventually wore off, she finally decided to take her love and passion for food to the next level. A few years later she enrolled in the Institute of Culinary Education (ICE). A Culinary school located downtown New York City.
Chef Roshelle, worked in various restaurants and events throughout the New York and the New Jersey Area. One of her major projects was assisting in the Superbowl after party. Hosted by DIRECT-TV in New York City at Pier 40 Stadium in 2014…some of you might know it as the Celebrity Beach Bowl! Volunteering at the Celebrity Chef Gala on a year to year basis.
Her career took her from working in restaurants to recipe development, food blogging, opening restaurants, food photography, a small cooking channel to now having her very own business. During her spare time, Chef Roshelle writes and test recipes for her home and upcoming events. Whether or not she’s having a good or bad day she is always cooking up delicious and tasty treats. She believes that “doing something one’s passionate about can heal all wounds”.
