Rochelle is a New York-based food and wine writer whose mission is to make cooking, eating and drinking well accessible, easy, and enjoyable for everyone. Rochelle will play a strong role in the 2010 Vintage Finger Lakes Riesling Launch, September 19 - 24, 2011.
Having grown up in Syracuse and spent much time in the Finger Lakes, Rochelle is both eager and honored to be representing the wine and food of this bountiful region. "The food of the Finger Lakes is exciting, unique, and evocative of the terroir,” commented Rochelle. “Just like the perfectly-balanced wines. It's a match made in heaven."
Rochelle is a classically-trained chef with a communications degree from Le Moyne College and a grand diplome from the French Culinary Institute. She got her start in the food and wine world working as a catering chef in the famed Time Warner Center, and a cook in the New York Times and Michelin-starred restaurant Aldea, owned by Top Chef Masters competitor George Mendes. She prides herself on having cooked for (and survived!) the likes of Harold Dieterle, the winner of Top Chef’s Season One and Jeffrey Steingarten, Iron Chef’s most charming judge.
