About Me

I am an Architect And artist turned Chef!
My path to becoming a chef was quite a personal one, when I had to drop my career due to cancer. As a cancer survivor, I realized that cooking is also a form of creating and being artistic. I enjoy eating healthy and cooking different types of cuisines. As a Private Chef, I like to share my passion and culinary knowledge with clients and cook great food with simple fresh ingredients.
Prior to becoming a Private Chef I developed my skills at some top restaurants in Chicago, including the Four Seasons Hotel, The Pump Room, The Art Institute of Chicago and George Jewel catering. I have also worked extensively internationally in Italy, Mexico and Romania.

  • Chef Francisco "Paco" was amazing! I set up the experience as a cooking lesson for my best friend (who can't cook). Chef Paco was patient, laid back, and professional. He brought all of the ingredients and was informative and explained things to us in terms that were easily understood. The meal itself was phenomenal! He instructed us through a 3-course meal plus a a dessert! Very cool experience and reasonably priced. I will be contacting this Chef again for future events. Highly recommend!
