Introduction: Zac Franzoni is an artist in and out of the kitchen. He made his mark in Chicago as an abstract painter, and now he brings the same creativity and focus to cooking. As a personal chef, he bridges the gap between these two art forms with Culinary Abstraction. Zac has always searched for new ways to connect with his audience. He will collaborate with you to design the perfect menu. For any event - a private dinner for two or a luncheon for fifty - Zac brings his artistic passion from the gallery to your table. His specialty is Italian food, inspired by his family's heritage. Zac makes all of his own pasta by hand and pairs it with a multitude of flavorful sauces. However, Zac can also create customized menus to fit your needs in a wide array of cuisines, ranging from Asian to Southern comfort dishes. Zac is also Certified in Food Sanitation and Safety and has a ServSafe ® Food Protection Manager Certification, which is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI)–Conference for Food Protection (CFP)

Personal Chef

Hired Zach to surprise my wife for her 40th birthday. It was my first time hiring a professional chef and I'm so glad I picked him. Zach is easy to talk to and he was able to add surf and turf to our menu. We had a 4 course meal and everything was cooked perfectly. Everyone loved the food. Even my 7 year old son was asking him to come back the next day. I would definitely hire him again for future events.

Zach is a great chef. He was flexible on the menu, showed up precisely on time, brought an assistant so everything went very smoothly. The food was exceptional, every part of the meal was served right on time, at proper temperature and with lovely presentation. The fresh herbs from his garden was a special touch. I would recommend Zach to you, and we will definitely ask him back for future gatherings. Thank you Zach!
