For over twenty years, Franck Pontais has been creating the finest gastronomic experiences for celebrities, large corporations, high profile businesspeople and small groups of friends and family. Trained in the French tradition of the Traiteur (best known as deli in the UK) Franck has dedicated the last ten years of his career to introducing verrines – goumet food beautifully presented in individual glasses - to the UK. Born in Paris, Franck began his career aged 14 as a butcher’s apprentice. Two years later, he integrated prestigious Parisian culinary school CEPROC where he quickly progressed and gained considerable work. Aged 22, Franck was head hunted by Harrods to expand their Traiteur counter. Following his success, he joined Selfridges six years later where he launched their Traiteur counters in both London and Manchester. Franck then moved to Rhubarb Food Design, catering in VIP Rooms at exclusive events and at the homes of many “A list” celebrities. Highlights of this period include catering for Stella McCartney’s wedding, James Bond’s Die Another Day première, and Elton John charity ball. In 2005, Franck decided to set up his own catering and events company specialising in tailor-made menus for exclusive corporate and private events as well as fine dining and boutique delicatessen food. Since then, Franck’s published his first book and started undertaking major consultancy work for international corporations.
