Q: What do you like to eat?

Rosanna: I love eating Caribbean food, Italian food, Asian food, Mexican food and I am always willing to try different food.

Q: How did you first learn to cook and what’s your cooking background?

Rosanna: I learned to cook as a young girl. Being raised as a first generation born in Chicago, the daughter of Puerto Rican natives, cooking was a huge deal for me. Especially Puerto Rican food. There were not many Puerto Rican restaurants in Chicago in the 80’s and a lot of the 90’s, so my parents and family cooked a lot.

Rosy’s cooking TONIGHT from 4:00-6:15! “This traditional white rice and beans Puerto Rican meal includes a combination of shrimp with potatoes and a pork chop! Buen Provecho!”

Although both of my parents took part in teaching me how to cook Puerto Rican food my father played a major role in the details and art I learned about cooking it. His father owned a restaurant in Puerto Rico and was a well-known chef in his town.

Q: Who do you think about when you make this dish?

Rosanna: When I am cooking Puerto Rican food I think of my ancestors and all of the time and love they put into each meal they cooked and it makes me proud to do the same.

Q: Anything else we should know about you and your cooking?

Rosanna: Cooking has always been a passion for me because I know the end result is filling someone’s stomach with the same love and spice my family has taught me to cook with. Shmeal is a great way to share that love.
