David Rocco’s Sweet life leads to sweet success..

David Rocco doesn’t just like food, he loves it. But what it represents for him is much more than ingested nourishment to fuel the body. “To me, food is everything. It’s about the mental health of a community, the ability to connect. It’s about creating memories, which for me is one of most important aspects of life,” he explained.

In a label-obsessed society there are no shortage of impressive designations one can ascribe to Rocco, a first generation Canadian Italian.

  • International celebrity chef.
  • Renowned television personality.
  • Award winning, best-selling author.
  • Wine producer.

Chatting with him on the phone from his downtown Toronto office, one quickly realizes Rocco doesn’t seem to buy into the hype his celebrity could afford him.

Approachable, friendly and down to earth, Rocco, who will turn 48 in July, said he feels fortunate to be able to do what he loves.
