Celebrity chef  Rocco DiSpirito talks exclusively to t5m about growing up in Jamaica, Queens – and living just a few ‘blocks’ away from hip hop legends Run-DMC. He tells us how his diverse neighbourhood exposed him to all manner of new flavours – and how he enjoyed traditional Italian cuisine at home. Not only this, but we also learn about Rocco’s first foray into the restaurant business – working  for a pizza chain in order to save up for a Kiss album!
