About Rich Torrisi

Rich Torriso is a Chef and Managing Partner at Major Food Groups. Growing up in a family who shared a great love of eating, he was naturally curious and eager to learn his grandmother’s secrets in the kitchen. By the time he realized there are no secrets—just hard work, heat, and long hours—he was already in love with food.

"People piss their pants over the chicken parm and turkey sandwiches, and yeah, they're good—but my favorite is the potato and egg with provolone on a sesame seed hero. It's phenomenally simple but tastes out-of-this-world and is best eaten at 35,000 feet above the Atlantic on a plane trip to Portugal (I did this)."
