012: Chef Rocco DiSpirito

Rocco DiSpirito - Final 8.29

Rocco DiSpirito is one of the country’s best chefs. He helmed the kitchen of Union Pacific, a restaurant that was a NYC culinary landmark for years. His health took him on a different path than the food world may have hoped for, but in turn, he now cooks and coaches clients to achieve their best health. He’s authored 13 books, recently won Guy’s Grocery Games: Superstars, was the Healthy Food Coach on ABC’s Extreme Weight Loss, and Dr. Oz presented him with his foundation’s highest honor, the Golden Heart Award. He is also an advocate for food security and obesity issues. DiSpirito was named Food & Wine magazine’s “Best New Chef,” People magazine’s “Sexiest Chef” and was the first chef to appear on Gourmet magazine’s cover as “America’s Most Exciting Young Chef.”
