Just a dude, sitting on a stoop, petting my tomatoes.
Celebrity chef/ author/ awkward hand gesture-maker Rocco DiSpirito has several different cookbooks with delicious looking but healthy meals. However, I mostly enjoy his cookbooks for another reason, DiSpirito's odd posing in photographs. Blessed with generically handsome looks, DiSpirito could have been a Sears catalog model in another life. Below are some of my favorite DiSpirito poses from his books:
|Dog, you are the only one I can trust now.|
Yah, brah, I'm down with that!
So hot right now!
Mugger Chic: It's a hard knock life for Rocco.
Ninja Chef: Any closer and I will throw this burger at your face!
I hear what you are saying, little girl, and I completely disagree!
Shame Eating: Two burgers! Bad Rocco, bad!
Passionate Eating: I can be your hero, burger. I can kiss away the pain.
Ain't nobody at Whole Foods gonna steal Rocco's wallet!
It tickles! It tickles!
Sweet smell of success: These cookies make it all worthwhile.
