Roze Traore

While recovering from his second pulmonary valve replacement at 14, Rōze looked towards the kitchen for a healing place to recover and focus energy. At 18, Rōze enrolled at Le Cordon Bleu. Following graduation, he spent his time in Washington DC, Ivory Coast, London, Paris and NY, learning from the best in the business and immersing himself in a variety of cultures. Travel has always been the life line for Rōze’s creativity and the inspiration for what he creates in the kitchen. Most recently, Roze worked under Chef Daniel Humm at Eleven Madison Park and The NoMad Hotel. Since then, he has turned his attention towards his own company, Rōze LLC, executing private events, pop up dinners and curated dining experiences.
