Young Vincentian Chef Kamal Rose is making a name for himself in the USA.
Kamal, the son of local journalist Conley ‘Chivambo’ Rose and Giselle Francis, is one of a number of
chefs preparing gourmet meals on the occasion of America’s premier sporting event, the National Football League’s (NFL) Super Bowl being held in New York this coming Sunday, Feb. 2.
According to a release issued this week, Mr. Rose is an Executive Chef at the prestigious Tribeca Grill in New York. He and his fellow chefs, are participating in a fund-raising series of events, called the ‘Taste of the NFL’ aimed at raising awareness and funds for hunger relief organisations in the USA and a number of them are being held to coincide with the Super Bowl.
In honour of their contribution, leading figures from the ‘Taste’, including Kamal were invited on Tuesday of this week to be among the dignitaries participating in the traditional closing ceremony of the New York Stock Exchange.
He is also featured in the Jan. 27 issue of the very popular PEOPLE magazine with his recipe on New York style cheesecakes which he is preparing for the Taste’s pre-Super Bowl party on Feb 1.
Last year Kamal was also at the Super Bowl in New Orleans serving up a speciality of Shrimp Creole and Dirty Rice.
