Rocco began cooking up a storm during the first lockdown so Mum Sara set up his very own cooking Instagram account: chefrocco10 for a little bit of fun, where he has now gained over 3500 followers!

 

He has even been seen by Jamie Oliver and featured on BBC News for his culinary skills.

Sara, Rocco’s mum says:

“Rocco has always had a passion for cooking since a young age. Coming from a Jewish/Italian household. At the beginning of lockdown in March he decided to put his cooking skills to the test. One dish turned into cooking every day and really cooking up some amazing food. I decided to start an Instagram account just for fun and to track his progress. Since this, he has joined Jamie Oliver’s cooking buddies club and regularly shared his food on there and he was even approached by his team to be one of their cooking buddie stars where Jamie and his kids watched Rocco cook and commented on his post! (This was shared on his Instagram and Facebook pages.)

Rocco has also been cooking for friends and family, delivering little treats during lockdown like focaccia and doughballs! His next idea is pizza with his new pizza oven. He has really found his passion and lockdown has allowed him to put it to the test. So, a positive outcome has come from all of this!”
