Frank was amazing ! My friends and I hired a chef to cook dinner for us while we were on a girls vacation.... it was great being catered to and the food was delicious. I am sure my friends and I are sometimes overwhelming but Frank fit in perfectly and made the evening extra special. He helped us plan a menu and his bruschetta was perfect and the salmon was delightful. He was professional yet entertaining and was a highlight of our trip!

I hired Frank to come to my parents house for their 30th wedding anniversary. Per my parents, "the food was absolutely delicious and more than what we expected. Frank was a riot and really made the evening. The pork was like sirloin steak it was so tender and the dessert was to die for!" I absolutely recommend and would definitely hire him again. Thank you so much Chef Frank!

Chef Frank is all heart with what he cooked for our celebration of a love one’s 50th. Considering the event fell on Father’s Day, Chef went over and above to serve as a fantastic surprise meal. I still could taste how savory everything was just by thinking about the feast. Definitely recommend Chef Frank 100 percent.
