Booksigning with Chef Rossi of The Raging Skillet, a “memoir with recipes,” Sept. 29 at 4 p.m. (and at each of the show dates below.) Chef Rossi will sign copies of her book at Sedona Arts Academy. Cast members from the play will also be in attendance. “Emerson Theater Collaborative is excited to partner with Peregrine Book Company on this unique event,” says Producer and ETC President Camilla Ross.

Rossi is the award-winning chef and owner of New York’s The Raging Skillet, the city’s “wildest catering company.”
When Rossi’s Jewish mother discovers the microwave, home-cooked meals become a thing of the past. What starts as a rebellion against her Orthodox parents, chauvinism in the kitchen, and the pressures of conformity ends with her becoming New York’s #1 punk-rock caterer. Rossi’s second memoir “Queen of the Jews,” is near completion.

It reveals the struggles American soldiers face at war and their internal struggles to come back home. The show strives to help us understand how and why it is so difficult for men and women in the armed services to re-enter civilian life when they return home. It’s goal is to honor our veterans and thank their families for their immense sacrifice to our country. The American Soldier is the story of how many men and women have put on and are willing to put on the uniform to fight, defend and give the ultimate sacrifice for what our country stands for.
