Nettie Frank, Chef, Silver Whisk
What began with a little girl playing with ingredients in her parents' kitchen, has evolved into a profession as a nationally sought after and accomplished top chef. Nettie Frank has spent over 20 years in the culinary industry. Frank’s professional training began in 2000 at The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York. Then, she returned to her home state of Utah to work alongside culinary artists at the prestigious Log Haven, the premiere Grand America Hotel, and the renowned Snowbasin Ski Resort.
In 2006, Frank stepped out on her own, starting Silver Whisk Catering. Silver Whisk provided delectable delights for weddings, corporate events, and high profile clients like professional golfer Tony Finau. Frank has been an invited guest chef at Disney's Food and Wine Events at resorts in both California and Florida, provided red carpet fare to celebrities at Project Angel Food in Los Angeles, and served the cast of Will and Grace at CBS studios.
Nettie launched Beyond Glaze Doughnuts with her father in 2008. They quickly won a “Best in Utah Doughnuts Award” for their gourmet treats that boasted a “No Sprinkles Allowed” philosophy. This is when she caught the eye of The Food Network, appearing on the first season of Cake Wars in 2015 and earning the respect of top chefs and the adoration of a national audience.
Her on camera experience doesn't stop there, Nettie is a well-known food stylist working with companies like Frigo Cheese and Santa Monica Seafood. She is a frequent guest on Utah television shows Good Things Utah and BYU's Dinner Takes All. But her favorite moments are spent where it all started, back in her own kitchen teaching budding chefs through social media and on her YouTube channel Chef Nettie Frank, and spending as much real time as possible with her husband, two children, family, and friends.
