Rib Room New Orleans Chef Tom Wolfe

The Rib Room’s Tasso Mac and Cheese

1 tablespoon unsalted butter

1-1/2 cups small-diced tasso

4 cups whole milk

1 tablespoon minced garlic

2 pounds American cheese, cubed

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Pinch of cayenne

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, plus more for topping

1 pound hot elbow macaroni, cooked, drained

In a 4-quart pot, melt butter over medium heat. Saute tasso in butter. Add whole milk and garlic. Over very low heat, let tasso steep in the milk for 10 minutes.

Add cubed American cheese. Stir over low heat until cheese is melted. Season with salt, pepper and cayenne. While stirring, add shredded cheddar in batches to thicken the sauce. Add more, if needed, to reach the desired consistency.

Butter a casserole dish and preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine the cooked pasta with the cheese sauce, and toss until thoroughly blended. Pour the macaroni and cheese into the prepared casserole dish. Sprinkle more cheddar on top.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until casserole starts to just bubble around the edges. Serve immediately.

Award-winning Chef Returns to New Orleans to Take Helm
of Legendary French Quarter Restaurant

NEW ORLEANS (Feb. 12, 2015)Omni Royal Orleans is pleased to announce Tom Wolfe as newly appointed executive chef of its Rib Room restaurant. An award-winning chef who fine-tuned his culinary abilities at some of New Orleans’ most esteemed restaurants, Wolfe will add an exciting new dimension to the hotel’s Zagat-rated restaurant, banquet and private party facilities through his innovative take on contemporary dining and traditional New Orleans cuisine.

RIB ROOM 2015 TOM WOLFE CHEF Wolfe brings more than 20 years of experience in all aspects of the restaurant world to the Rib Room, including apprenticeships at distinguished restaurants such as the Brennans’ family-owned Mr. B’s Bistro and later at Emeril Lagasse’s Emeril’s Restaurant, where he mastered positions such as pastry, saucier and butcher stations, as well as executive sous chef for six years of his eight-year tenure. He was executive chef and owner of Wolfe’s of New Orleans and the former Peristyle Restaurant.

Wolfe developed the concept for Wolfe’s in the Warehouse in the Marriott Convention Center New Orleans, which is still operating under his name today. Prior to moving back to New Orleans to take over the helm of the Rib Room, Wolfe spent the past several years in Mississippi and Alabama and most recently Louisiana Pantry in Orange Beach, Ala.

“We are proud to have Chef Wolfe on our team to continue the strong tradition of the Rib Room with an appreciation of its place in New Orleans’ culinary culture,” said Krystof Kucewicz, director of food & beverage. “Chef Wolfe is tremendously talented and grew up with a passion for preparing traditional Louisiana cuisine and expanding on it to create complex flavors that maintain its relevance.”

The Rib Room’s benchmark rotisserie remains a focal point featuring rotisserie prime rib and steaks, seafood and fowl, with contemporary selections that go well beyond the classics. Wolfe joins a team of innovative professionals on the Rib Room culinary team, including Food & Beverage Director Kucewicz, Pastry Chef Thomas Weindel and Culinary Supervisor Jenny Frught.

Chef Wolfe was named one of five chefs to watch in the United States by Esquire Magazine and a Rising Star Chef in 2003. His restaurant concepts have been recognized by Zagat, Bon Appetit and Wine Spectator Magazine. Wolfe received the Gold Medal for Food at the New Orleans Wine and Food Experience Grand Tasting in 2003, 2004 and 2005.

Other defining moments in Chef Wolfe’s career include his invitation to host a dinner at the prestigious James Beard House in New York City, where he worked alongside chefs such as Charlie Trotter and Larry Forgione. He began his career by starting a catering business, which taught him the basic principles of owning a business in the food industry, before enrolling in Delgado University’s Culinary Arts program.

The Rib Room offers a fine dining experience in an elegant setting at one of the most historic hotels in New Orleans. Winner of the prestigious Zagat Award, the Rib Room offers classics such as slow roasted prime rib of beef, aged steaks, fresh Louisiana seafood, and an award-winning champagne brunch on Sunday. Home of the $2 “Washbucket Martini” every Thursday and Friday afternoon, the Rib Room Bar is well known as a local celebrity hangout. The Rib Room is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Omni Royal Orleans offers Rib Room diners complimentary valet parking in the hotel garage for up to three hours. For reservations, call (504) 529-7046.
