THE EARLY DAYS
Frank inherited his passion for good food from his Italian family, although he grew up in the many hotels and restaurants that his father managed up and down the UK. The Bordoni family come from an area south east of Rome, in the foothills of the Frascati Mountains and it is there that Frank learned so much about food and ingredients. At only 19 years of age, Frank was awarded his first AA Rosette, leading him to develop his career in the best respected and finest rosette and Michelin starred establishments in the country.

ORGANIC FOOD & HEALTHY EATING
Bordoni’s love of healthy and high quality food led to him championing organic food and later to be regarded as the UK’s leading authority on cooking with organic food. An advocate of "you are what you eat" and his determination to bring his message across, led to him collaborating on many media, industry and corporate projects, earning him the nickname 'The Body' Bordoni by Celebrity Chef Anthony Worrall Thompson. More recently Frank has been vital in introducing and promoting organic produce both in Europe and the Middle East, working with suppliers, government organisations, charities, companies and chefs.
