Brooklyn, New York (PRWEB) September 12, 2014
Life long Brooklynite and award winning chef, Vincent Tropepe is set to take home one of the culinary world's highest honors. On Thursday, October 23rd, 2014 Chef Vincent Tropepe will be the youngest inductee into the Culinary Hall of Fame at Brooklyn Borough Hall. Known for his high standards and pursuit of executing each dish perfectly Tropepe is known as "The American born Gordon Ramsey" by Edible Magazine.
Director of Inductions for the Culinary Hall of Fame based out of Colorado, Certified Master Chef Richard Rosenhale comments, "Chef Tropepe embodies all of the prime characteristics a well rounded culinary professional should have. Between his twenty five cuisine and restaurant certifications, his long list of celebrity clientele and now his restaurant consulting and defense strategy work in concert with his advocacy for necessary reforms in New York City, the Culinary Hall of Fame and its Induction Committee feels that no other chef is as deserving of this high honor."
In 2008, Tropepe was inducted into the elite culinary fraternity the LEs Amis D'Escoffier Culinares Society, two short years after he received a national recognition as the USACC's Chef of the Year award to only name a few highlights of his career. Tropepe comments, "I do what I do because I am inspired to do it. Throughout my career I have been continuously humbled by these recognitions and all I wish to do is to keep making Brooklyn and the people in my life proud."
Tropepe attended Saint Bernadette Elementary School, Xaverian High School and then attended the Art Institute of New York City. After receiving what would be his first of many gold medals in 2002, Tropepe worked at Alaine Ducasse's critically acclaimed restaurant Alaine at The Essex House. Ducasse commented to the Culinary Hall of Fame about the induction choice, "Tropepe from the very beginning had a fire in his eye. It's no surprise he made it this far."
