Frankie Solarik
BarChef

Co-owner of Toronto’s BarChef – rated by Food and Wine Magazine as one of the “top seven new and innovative bars in the world” – Frankie Solarik is a pioneer of the Modernist and contemporary approach to cocktails internationally. Solarik's work has earned him international acclaim; hosting masterclasses in Paris and Berlin, as well as travelling to Hong Kong to host a coursed cocktail tasting event at Michelin starred restaurant, VEA. He has been profiled in major national magazines, newspapers and television shows, including Condé Nast, The Art of Plating, The New York Times, The National Post, The Globe and Mail, Imbibe Magazine, Global TV, City TV, CNN and CBC. Although many of his signature dishes feature complex flavours and spectacular presentations, employing everything from frozen carbon dioxide to hydrosols and blowtorches, at their very core the compositions depend on a "less is more" approach. A process rooted in balancing components that complement each other rather than contrast, regardless how many ingredients he is working with. His approach is unique, his research impeccable. His colossal goal: to inspire others worldwide to adopt a completely new outlook in cocktail culture and to dramatically expand on the Modernist movement.
