BIO

Frankie grew up in Hell’s Kitchen New York, mom and both sets of grandparents created an environment where great food was the norm. It wasn’t until he left for college that he realized how good he had it, that’s when he started cooking for others and sharing his passion. Since then, Frankie’s goal has always been the same; get as many people in the kitchen as possible. Now more than ever, the skill and craft of cooking gives each of us the ability to take control of our health, wellbeing and finances. Since 2009 he’s been teaching everything he knows about cooking with an ever growing fanbase. The journey has taken him to the Obama White House, paired him with Sesame Street’s Cookie Monster and given him the opportunity to nourish Novak Djokovic during the 2019 & 2020 U.S. Open Championships. 

Food TV has been Frankie’s favorite and most effective way of getting recipes and techniques out. Having started on YouTube, moved to local NYC television and now a regular on Tastemade, Frankie has always enjoyed the craft of cooking on screen even as the medium continues to modernize. Struggle Meals, a Tastemade production, is Frankie’s latest and most popular show with seven season thus far. It serves the underserved by showcasing inventive, affordable meals and by listening to viewers through the wildly popular Facebook group. Frankie is the recipient of the 2022 Daytime Emmy® Award for Outstanding Culinary Host, the category he was nominated for in 2020. He is also the recipient of 3 New York Emmy® awards, including the 2016 award for Outstanding On-Screen Talent.
