About Frank and Gmarket Chef

Frank Kwiatkowski

After years of working under Michelin Star Chefs at fine dining restaurants across Chicago, Frank Kwiatkowski decided he wanted to bring Michelin-quality food and the cooking experience directly to diners. That’s when he founded Gmarket Chef.

Frank is known for creating delicious meals but also memorable experiences, with cooking classes, event catering, corporate catering and food styling.

His passion lies in bringing a restaurant to life in a diner’s own home or at their special event to show that fine dining can be fun, approachable and affordable.
