Born just south of Pittsburgh, Chef Rebecca Romagnoli embarked on her culinary journey at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. While a student there, she excelled at her studies and earned the prestigious James Beard Scholarship Award. Cultivating her trade through studies and the experience she gained working for the William Penn Hotel, Rebecca advanced her career to being named Executive Chef at The Vandal, one of Lawrenceville’s most exciting restaurant destinations! Of Italian heritage, Rebecca embraces pasta making and the artistry behind it. Her creativity and talent far surpass the essentials of spaghetti and fettuccine, knocking on the door of hand-crafted perfection, ranging from lorighittas to corzetti and torteletti, just to name a few. While she tries to “reinvent the wheel” with her original take on classic pasta dishes, she still focuses and relies on the basics – simple ingredients and delicious accompaniments.
The Student Corner:
Miss Diane started with Community Kitchen Pittsburgh’s Class 38 and immediately knew she had made the right decision. She had experienced changes in her career and wanted to find work she could enjoy, and that brought her to Community Kitchen Pittsburgh! As soon as she started in the program, she knew she had made a good decision because everyone felt like family! “Everyone welcomed me in with open arms,” she said.
Working with CKPgh’s programming team, Miss Diane interviewed for an Assistant Kitchen Manager position. Upon meeting Miss Diane and reviewing her skills, the employer, Woodside Flatbread, offered Miss Diane the Kitchen Manager position, which she was pleased to accept!
In addition to working with Woodside Flatbread, Miss Diane, an entrepreneur at heart, makes homemade bean pies and custard you can buy at Nancy’s Restaurant in Wilkinsburg! Congratulations Miss Diane! You are a shining example of CKPgh success!
