Chef Rossi, the punk rock kitchen goddess and New York’s #1 rebel anti-caterer, has gathered friends and admirers to the theatre to celebrate the launch of her first-ever memoir, The Raging Skillet. Acting as Master of Ceremonies, DJ Skillit gets the crowd pumped for Rossi’s party where she will tell stories from the book and perform a cooking demo of some of her white-trash treats. Things immediately begin to unravel with the unanticipated arrival of her long-dead mother who has come all the way back from the afterlife to “kvell” over her daughter’s accomplishments. We hopscotch from Rossi’s childhood growing up in an Orthodox Jewish home in New Jersey to Manhattan to discover her true calling. No longer willing to put up with the sexism of the male-dominated professional kitchen, Rossi launches her own business – The Raging Skillet – and establishes her reputation as a feminist culinary commando.
