As a 12-year-old dishwasher at a Brampton restaurant, Jason Rosso was already on his path to chase after few dreams.
Now, at age 43, he has come back to the beginning, returning to the site–341 Main St. N. – where he once worked as a line-cook, but this time he’s the boss, as he opens his new restaurant J. Red & Co.
“Even though I have learned classical and contemporary French cuisine, I love ethnic food – Vietnamese, Chinese, Indian, African and others,” he said. “I am obsessed with big bowls of flavours. We serve food that, when you ate it, you go ‘this-is-the-best-burger-I have-ever-had.’”
Rosso’s love for gastronomy was rekindled at Humber College’s Culinary Arts program. He’s a celebrated alumni whose success is an inspiration for students, said Mississauga resident Rudi Fischbacher, Associate Dean, School of Hospitality, Recreation and Tourism.
