About the Author

At the age of sixteen celebrated chef Rocco DiSpirito entered the Culinary Institute of America, and at eighteen began working for legendary chefs worldwide. After graduating from Boston University with a degree in business, he began working for such renowned New York chefs as Gray Kunz. In 1995 Rocco opened Dava and quickly earned two stars from Ruth Reichl at The New York Times. At thirty-one, Rocco opened Union Pacific in New York City and received three stars from The New York Times.
Hailed as one of Food and Wine magazine’s Best New Chefs, DiSpirito is the first chef to grace the cover of Gourmet magazine as “America’s Most Exciting Young Chef,” and was voted their “Leading Chef of his Generation.” Referred to as America’s original “Rockstar Chef,” Rocco has been featured in Harper’s Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, W, The New York Times, Details, House Beautiful, Us, OK! and People, including the Sexiest Man Alive issue.
DiSpirito received the James Beard Award for his first cookbook, Flavor. He went on to author Rocco’s Italian-American (2004), Rocco’s Five Minute Flavor (2005), Rocco’s Real-Life Recipes (2007), and Rocco Gets Real (2009).
DiSpirito also starred in the Food Network series Melting Pot, the NBC hit reality series The Restaurant, and the A&E series Rocco Gets Real. He is a content partner on Rachael Ray, and a frequent guest on Good Morning America and Top Chef. He has appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Chelsea Lately, The Late Show with David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and NBC’s The Biggest Loser, and was the first chef to compete on the ABC megahit Dancing with the Stars.
In 2006 DiSpirito began his quest toward a more active and healthy life, competing in triathlons, including an Ironman 70.3. In November 2009 he was the spokesperson for and completed the Ironman in Clearwater, Florida, setting a personal-best time. Rocco lives in New York City and appreciates all that cooking has brought to him.

4.0 out of 5 stars So far, so good Sept. 18 2010
I have made a couple recipes from this book & I liked them both (shrimp & asparagus stirfry + the mac & cheese). I love the idea of using greek yogurt to make things "creamy"! I also love that Rocco provides recipes to make your own sauces + condiments because it eliminates having to buy processed, MSG filled store-bought versions. The only thing that I DON'T like about this cookbook is the use of artificial sweeteners in a lot of the recipes. Personally, I am not a fan of fake sugar, no matter how many calories it saves! I agree with one of the other reviewers comments that this book teaches you a new way of cooking your fave "comfort foods" + even if you tweak the recipes a bit, it's still a healthy approach to cooking! Al in all, so far, this book was worth the money + I am glad that I bought it.

5.0 out of 5 stars so far so great.... April 30 2010
I have had this book for 1 month now and I have made the cookies 4 times! They are so delicious! I have made the fetticinni alfredo, as well, and I cannot believe how tasty it is without using half a pound of cream and butter. Yogurt? Parm? For real? It's true. With the recipes using such different ingredients (low fat, high fiber and protein), you have to be willing to try a new way of cooking. But this cookbook is worth it and I can't wait to try more recipes (they all look so delicious). Even if I only make the cookies, I am still so thankful Rocco made this book... yum yum yum!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this book! May 17 2010
I've had this book a couple months and have made a few recipes, they were good, I tweaked them here and there to suit my tastes, without adding many additional calories and fat...some of the ingredients are harder to find here in Canada, but can easily be substituted...I find that the recipe photos look much better then the real thing, not sure why that is?? I am making the brownies as I type this, can't wait to try them mmmm....this book is worth the money, espeically if one is trying to change to a healthy lifesyle and/or lose weight!!!

If you are trying to watch your waistline like me, this book is for you. Not only do you get low-cal versions of many of your favorite foods, but they are true to the flavours and DELICIOUS. Pad Thai, Jambalaya, Pot Pie, Macaroni and Cheese with crunch, the list goes on. There are salads and DESSERTS!! Did I mention Desserts? The Triple Chocolate Cookies are amazing but my fave is the Berry Yummy Frozen Yogurt Pops. There are brownies and others of course to satisfy your sweet tooth. Very nice when it was scorching hot in the summer to grab one of those instead of ice cream. Very figure friendly and TASTY!

There are very nice pics in this book too and the recipes are easy to follow and well written for even the most novice of cooks. Not every cookbook I own has that, so that is a BIG bonus. Such a great book and well put together.

I also love that he has salad dressing recipes in here. One only can guess what kind of stabilizers that they put into the ones in the bottles to make them last for months in my fridge. The basil pesto and the Not So Basic Vinaigrette are my favorites. Also, when you make the Marinara, make a bunch. It's tasty and you'll want to spoon it on everything. I mean you'll want to make chicken parm sandwiches with it, pizza, everything. There are recipes in the book that call for it as well, so it won't go to waste.

Where else can you get a Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad for 202 calories with freshly made dressing? No restaurant I know of.

My faves are the Chicken and Mushroom Risotto, the Jambalaya, Shrimp Stir Fry, Sweet Onion and Leek Quiche (though I sometimes make it with other veggies), the dressings and the sweet potato puree gets made often.

2.0 out of 5 stars Can't find food May 3 2010
By Krista
The food in this book must be in the States because I have gone to multiple stores in Halifax, NS and can't find most of the ingredients, like Greek yogurt and expresso powder. I also can't find a lot of the low fat things in low fat. I have had this book for over a month already and have not made anything yet. If anyone has this book and can find the ingredients please let me know so I can try a few things.

A practical guide to preparing flavor with fewer calories. The fettucine alfredo was excellent. The over all theme is to eat well and live to tell about it. Read more

Too many calories. Uses too much meat. I should probably be reading Vegetarian Cook Books to find what I am looking for. Read more
