The Punk Rock Queen of the Jews Women Beyond a Certain Age Podcast

    • Society & Culture

Join us for a conversation with Chef Rossi about her memoir, The Punk Rock Queen of the Jews! It's a rollercoaster that whisks you through a world bursting with rich characters, uproarious dialogue, vivid snapshots of the Orthodox community and the gritty, pulsating 1980s New York City scene -- raw, on the edge, but gloriously alive. Rossi was raised in a conservative Jewish family, expected to toe the line, marry right, and play by the kosher rulebook. But at 16, she flipped the script, blossoming into a rebellious renegade, craving adventure over conformity. And just as she tasted freedom, her parents swooped in, yanked her away, and dropped her off with a Chasidic rabbi in Crown Heights, Brooklyn.





Rossi has been published in outlets including The Daily News, The New York Post, Time Out New York, and McSweeney’s, to name a few. She has been the food writer of the “Eat Me” column for Bust magazine since 1998, hosts her own hit radio show on WOMR and WFMR in Cape Cod called Bite This, now in its nineteenth season, has been featured on The Food Network and NPR and has been a popular blogger for The Huffington Post. Her first memoir, “The Raging Skillet: The True Life Story of Chef Rossi” was published by The Feminist Press to rave reviews. In addition to memoir, Rossi has written two full-length plays, a number of one-act comedies, a one-woman stage adaptation of Queen of the Jews, and launched the Raging and Eating podcast.
