Culinary Team-Up of the Decade Happens Next Month

“Me cannot wait to meet Rocco."

One of them is a star chef and former reality-television star who recently switched gears to promote healthy-eating choices. The other is blue, unkempt, and probably still reeling from the almost 7 million views he's gotten on YouTube in the past ten days. On August 3, Rocco DiSpirito and Cookie Monster will break bread cookies at the NYPL for a carb summit and free cooking demo. "If me no like Rocco’s cookies, maybe me can consume Library books instead," says Cookie Monster. "Me hear they good source of fiber. Oh boy, oh boy! Me so excited!” [NYPL, Earlier]
