Rosas provided this for his online profile:

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN COOKING?
I first developed my love for cooking by watching my grandmother, Elena, work her magic in the kitchen. At a young age I would sit in amazement as she would make fresh tortillas on the comal. My first professional position in the kitchen was at 16 years old, as a dishwasher where I continued pushing myself and learning the trade. Currently, I am the head chef at The Grandview Restaurant in Lake Geneva. I also offer my services as a Private Chef.

WHAT IS YOUR SIGNATURE DISH?
Oscar style veal chop, asparagus, lobster claw & knuckle meat, Au gratin potato, béarnaise sauce, garnished with micro flowers.
