French cuisine captured Ted Rodriguez' palette early in life, and after a couple years of cooking classes here in the Los Angeles area, a formal culinary training was in order. Packing his knife bag, he attended the world famous French Culinary institute in New York.
He learned from masters like Jacques Pepin, Andrea Soultnor and Jacques Torres, and cooked with Rocco Despirito and other New York chefs. Prior to starting his own catering company in Newport Beach, he worked for the famous catering company, Tentation Catering, in Manhattan. After returning to Orange County, Ted joined Patina Croup's catering operation as a chef.
With this exposure to preparing food, the Flavor Rush Food Truck menu will vary and change on Flavor Rush on a weekly basis. One week there maybe scallops and abalone and next week there could be lentil soup and a croissant stuff with cheese and tomato served with fries and a hint of French truffle.
