Anna Rossi, MasterChef USA Season 3 finalist, is a working mom who knows a thing or two about keeping busy!
Born and raised on a small island in the Pacific Northwest, Anna spent over two years abroad, studying language and culinary arts in Denmark, France, Italy and Spain. It was along her solo trek across France and Spain on el Camino de Santiago that her passion for cooking blossomed. Her time spent along the Mediterranean, her childhood in the Northwest and life in New England greatly impact her style of cooking with an emphasis on simple, clean flavors and healthy ingredients. Not only does she see food as a vehicle for health and nourishment but also as a form of self-expression and motivation to build community, slow down and savor the moment!
Cooking is her passion!
In addition to cooking alongside culinary greats like Gordon Ramsay, Graham Elliot and Joe Bastianich, Anna’s recipes have been published in the MasterChef Ultimate Cookbook, Cosmopolitan.com, PRIME living, and more. She has worked as a contributing food writer for Northshore Magazine and made multiple appearances on FOX Boston sharing recipes and cooking tips. She has even taught in Ming Tsai’s kitchen at the Clarke Culinary Center. Since MasterChef in 2012, Anna has worked as a lifestyle food blogger, personal chef and has had the pleasure of catering for upscale corporate institutions including Neiman Marcus.
She is thrilled to have joined the Olivio Family as National Spokesperson and Ambassador and looks forward to sharing a passion for healthy living with you!
