Frankie’s goal has always been the same; get as many people in the kitchen as possible. 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 on his 2016 run to the U.S. Open Finals.
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 TV, 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 3 New York Emmy® awards, including one in 2016 for “Best Host” and a 2017 IAWTV Award for “Best Host” on the Tastemade production of “Frankie’s World”.
