About Chef Rocco DiSpirito
Rocco DiSpirito entered the Culinary Institute of America at the age of sixteen, and at eighteen began working with legendary chefs worldwide. He went to work at Adrienne in Hotel Maxim's de Paris (now the Peninsula Hotel) under Jean-Michel Diot and Jacques Chibois. He later became Chef de Partie at Aujourd'hui in Boston. While working for Chef Mark Baker at Aujourd'hui, Rocco learned to combine French techniques with Asian ingredients, now part of his own signature style.
Curious about this style of fusion cooking, Rocco returned to New York to study under great chefs Charlie Palmer, David Bouley, Gilbert Le Coze, and Gary Kunz. Kunz later included Rocco in the opening team of the famous Lespinasse restaurant.
The James Beard award-winning chef opened the 3-star Union Pacific in New York City, where he established his culinary credentials. He was named Food & Wine's Best New Chef and--as the first chef to grace its cover--was called 'America's Most Exciting Young Chef' by Gourmet. DiSpirito starred in the NBC hit reality series The Restaurant, and the A&E series Rocco Gets Real. He has appeared on Oprah, Ellen, Chelsea Lately, and The Tonight Show, among others.
