Chef Frankie “The Bull” Terzoli —
Frank Terzoli burst into the limelight in the 2006-2007 season of Top Chef with a big, bold personality. Bringing a generous portion of zesty attitude to the television kitchen, Frank earned himself the nickname “Frankie the Bull” from his fellow contestants on the show. His television appearances have also included Beat Bobby Flay, Cutthroat Kitchen, Cutthroat Kitchen Champions, Chef Wanted and Man vs. Child: Chef Showdown.
Long before his fame on TV, Frank started his culinary career at the age of 10 as a pint-sized sous-chef at an Italian restaurant in San Diego. As the son of an immigrant fisherman, Frank was licensed as a captain at age 22 and went on to work for seafood companies in 25 countries. Today, he remains passionate about the quality and sustainability of seafood and international cuisine.
Frank can also sing Italian opera and speaks fluent Portuguese, Sicilian and Spanish.
