Over the years. we have received a lot of questions in reference to feeding a family. These questions range from potent prenatal foods to tips on pleasing everybody in the family come meal time.
How do we make sure our children and ourselves are getting optimal nutrition? How can we plan ahead and or eat on the go and still consume densely nourishing foods?
Frank's passion for cooking fresh, seasonal ingredients has been directly influenced by having a family. As parents and guardians of two children, we feel it is essential to provide them with the proper building blocks so that they may grow healthy and strong. The foods they eat in their younger years will play an important role on their health as adults.
We are excited to put together this 2 week virtual course to help inspire you to provide wholesome and nourishing food for your family.
From Kitchen Sweeps to One Pot Meals, we will cover a lot of ground and give you a solid base to take your cuisine to a new level.
Chef Frank’s Food Philosophy
Preparing food is my art. It’s truly a creative expression for me, and it’s a deeply fulfilling act to nourish and feed my family. Working with food for the last 20 years has also been the way I’ve sustained myself financially. It started as just a job at the age of 15, and has blossomed into a full blown passion. Throughout all of my years of preparing food, I’ve also become well immersed in the health food world. This has helped garner a profound understanding of how the food I eat literally becomes me.
Nowadays, the many different aspects of making a meal consume a great portion of my free time; with days off spent cooking for the family, I might also be off foraging, hunting, fishing, or tending to the small garden I keep at our off-grid home in Maine.
Through my craft I’ve also come to feel deeply connected to the Maine landscape and the time of year. It’s my belief and approach that the location and season depict what should be harvested, and therefore consumed. Tuning in to the natural rhythms of the earth bring about balance and a sense of coexistence for me. By eating a seasonally based diet, I’m able to capture ingredients at their peak flavor and freshness, as well as their maximum nutritional output.
As the seasons pass and different ingredients become available, I work to weave them into my daily creations. Each ingredient comes to the kitchen with a different quality, feel, flavor, and phytochemistry, and these characteristics greatly influence the way I prepare a dish. I apply a variety of food preparation techniques to preserve the bounty of the seasons, including curing, fermenting, pickling and canning. These preservation techniques allow me to enjoy locally available ingredients months beyond their season. Beyond that, certain ingredients require additional processing to make them edible, more nutritious, or more palatable.
There are no shortcuts in my diet, nor in the cuisine I prepare for my family or clients. It is my goal to serve purposefully prepared, authentic meals that are not only satiating, but immensely flavorful.

About Chef Frank
Born and raised along the Connecticut shoreline, Frank Giglio began his culinary career at the age of 15, when he first stepped into a professional kitchen. With a desire to learn more and deepen his skills , he headed north to the New England Culinary Institute in Montpelier, VT. After completing apprenticeships in Portland, OR and Boston, Frank spent the next few years cooking his way across the country, making it as far west as Alaska, where he learned to cook wild game like wild salmon, moose, king crab, and elk.
In 2003, Frank felt the call to leave the restaurant industry and begin his journey into seeing food as medicine. For the next 4 years, he would learn an array of alternative diets, experimenting on himself and his clients. During this time, Frank would attend the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in NYC.
Years would pass with Frank honing his skills before moving to Maine and purchasing an off-the-grid home with his wife Camille, where they began homesteading on Three Lily Farm. The pair and their boys can be found foraging, gardening, raising animals, and producing value added products for their shop Three Lily Provisions.
