About Tatiana Pairot Rosana
After graduating in 2010, Rosana moved to Boston to nourish her culinary career and landed an externship at Harvest Restaurant in Harvard Square, where she met the first great female chef that would become her mentor. At Harvest, Rosana worked with noted Chef Brian Young and former Iron Chef Contestant, Chef Mary Dumont, who Rosana credits with shaping the course of her culinary career and teaching her more than she ever could have learned in school. In 2011, Rosana joined the team at Mandarin Oriental Hotel where she worked under the supportive guidance of award-winning Chef Rachel Klein, another great mentor with whom Rosana still remains close. It was during this time Rosana sharpened her skills as a kitchen manager, team leader and quickly moved up the ranks to earn the title of Chef de Partie. It was also at the Mandarin that Rosana met her wife, Alexis, a foodie in her own right and an encouraging influence that pushes Rosana “to be a better chef every single day.” Today, Rosana heads Outlook Kitchen and Bar, Lookout Rooftop and Bar as well as The Envoy Hotel’s in-room dining. She describes her culinary approach as more of a philosophy than a style. Inspired by her wife’s Korean heritage, her own Cuban background, French training and New England experience, Rosana is guided by her curiosity and openness to new cuisines.
