Our conversation with Rosa began yesterday, but you can catch up by looking here.
And now, let's wrap up our interview with part two below . . .
Did you always know you wanted to be a chef? Did you study anything else in school?
I didn't know that I wanted to be a chef, but I knew that I wanted to own a restaurant as early as the age of 13. I wish I started out younger as a chef, but unfortunately, I started put later than most. Before culinary school, I was a floral designer; I owned a retail flower store for six years. Floral design and cooking goes hand in hand, a lot of creativity goes into both.
