Meet Our Carlsbad Chef: Jeff Rossman of Terra Catering


Let us introduce to you our chef for the night! We are so honored to have one of San Diego’s best, Chef Jeff Rossman of Terra Catering to fancy our taste buds in Carlsbad, CA.

Jeff Rossman, a skilled, self-taught Chef of nearly 30 years, helped pioneer San Diego’s thriving farm-to-table movement by purchasing fresh, organic produce from local growers before it was en vogue. Rossman traveled to farmer’s markets before farmer’s markets were cool.

Rossman is a strong advocate for his city and his passion for culinary. He constantly donates time, energy and product to help the local farm to school movement assisting the Oceanside, Lemon grove and most currently the San Ysidro School Food Services Directors teaching skills to workers and developing recipes.

He serves on the board of directors for the San Diego Chapter of the California Restaurant Association as well as vice president of the board for Chef Celebration Foundation of San Diego, a nonprofit which raises scholarship money for aspiring chefs.

In 2011, Rossman published his first cookbook showcasing local farms and school gardens. His award-winning book, “From Terra’s Table”, focuses on the love story of the hardworking local growers and artisans he supports. He has released his second book “BYOB (Build Your Own Burger)” which features thousands of burger combinations as well as condiments, sides, and farm to bar beverage creations.

He has been selected by the California Avocado Commission to represent them in cooking demonstrations with recipe creations for their website.

Rocking the taste buds of our guest, Chef Rossman will prepare a regionally inspired menu, which will include the best of springs harvest and the freshest culinary ingredients California has to offer!

Join us for dinner, we promise your taste buds will thank you! #F2V #AmericanGrown #OriginMatters
