Corcos was born in Florence, Italy, to a large family that placed a great deal of emphasis on cooking and family. Corocos learned to cook from his mother as a child, continuing a family tradition of learning to create traditional Tuscan dishes. Many of the dishes he prepares on his website and on his program are referred to as "farmers' cuisine" because the recipes are steeped in the agricultural traditions of the Italian countryside.
He began his culinary career in Los Angeles, California, operating a catering business that served many high-end Hollywood events and functions. Over time, he also explored work cooking specifically for various celebrities. After marrying actress Debi Mazar, the two moved from California to Brooklyn, New York, where they continued to grow their family. As of March 2013, Corcos was in the process of developing plans to open his own restaurant in the Brooklyn area, which would feature his signature Tuscan cuisine.Learn more about Art & Literature
