where Mr. Rooney teaches cooking classes.

Steve Rooney has traveled from the Merchant Navy to Executive Chef and TV personality. Steve’s first business of choice was the marine transport, where he rose to a position of operations manager in Fettes Shipping, Inc. While providing plenty of opportunity for travel, this job did not give him an outlet for his creative talents. Unsatisfied, Steve decided to move on to a new career, the Culinary Arts. From cooking in his family’s small hotel in Scotland to culinary classes in Toronto and finally a full AOS Chef’s program at the New England Culinary Institute, he rounded out his technical training. Next he set out for his practical training and apprenticed under a range of different chefs and styles of cuisine. After a stint at the Ritz in Atlanta, Steve left to become the Executive Chef for Means Street Productions, the producers of “Good Eats”. Currently Steve co-hosts the “Food Network” TV show, “Mario Eats Italy” with Mario Batali.
