Chef Fracchioni is known for his engaging and friendly style, making him a favourite with media and students of his frequent cooking demonstrations. Throughout the pandemic, Chef Fracchioni has led online demonstrations and cooking tutorials to several hundreds of home cooks and professional chefs across Canada. From 2016 to 2020, he worked as a Chef Professor at Centennial College School of Hospitality, Tourism & Culinary Arts in Toronto, teaching culinary students and providing faculty coordination as well as organizing and hosting many Italian themed events involving Michelin-starred chefs from Italy. In the past, he has co-hosted a tour of 17 people for a two week culinary experience in Tuscany and was the host of a popular television show called Country Cooking, airing on a local cable network in Ontario.
Chef Fracchioni’s culinary training began at George Brown College Centre for Hospitality and Culinary Arts in Toronto, followed by the kitchens of some of Toronto’s most prestigious restaurants including Scaramouche, Canoe and Auberge de Pommier. He joined Niagara’s Inn on the Twenty, a country inn located in the heart of Ontario’s wine country, and in 2000 he was appointed Executive Chef. In 2005, he became Executive Chef at the AAA/CAA Four Diamond Millcroft Inn & Spa, championing a movement to encourage neighbouring chefs and restaurants to use the organic and natural foods grown in the area.
Chef Fracchioni moved to Toronto in 2010 to open Monk Kitchen at Templar Hotel, a downtown, luxuriously designed boutique hotel. As Executive Chef, Chef Fracchioni designed nightly, multi-course, blind tasting menus for guests who were entertained alongside him at the chef’s table or encouraged to wander in from the dining room to see their food being prepared. Under Chef Fracchioni’s leadership, Monk Kitchen consistently won the OpenTable.com Diner’s Choice #1 spot in Toronto in the categories of Best Food, Best Service, Best Ambience and Best Overall restaurant.
In 2014, Chef Fracchioni opened Flor De Sal, a Toronto fine dining restaurant where he served as Executive Chef and in 2016, he moved on to the country luxe destination of Hockley Valley Resort, where he improved the food quality, guest ratings and profitability of the flagship restaurant, Cabin, while consulting on the launch of the property’s new winery restaurant.
