Rossy Orellana, Chef Manager
Rossy Orellana is excited to be part of the Kew-Forest community as Chef Manager. Prior to joining Kew-Forest School, Rossy was a Sous Chef at Poly Prep Country Day School for three years.
Rossy began cooking with her father when she was 7 years old. Her father not only taught her about how to properly use ingredients to maximize the flavor of a dish - he inspired her to become a chef.
Rossy’s culinary adventure began in 1997, working in food service at John F. Kennedy International Airport. From there, she went on to work for different catering companies that were servicing the Javits Center, Yankee Stadium, Belmont Park, and others.
In January of 2014, Rossy joined Cater to You as a Sous Chef. Her favorite aspect of working at Cater to You is seeing students, faculty, and parents react to the meals she creates with her culinary team. She loves having the opportunity to create wonderful meals with the best ingredients, and is looking forward to serving the Kew-Forest community.
Rossy lives in Hollis, Queens with her husband and two handsome boys. Her favorite meal to make at home is rice and black beans with chicken stew.
