With a magical combination of brash and lyrical, this unpolished "downtown chef" dives in and opens up the heart of Italy with the unflinching romanticism of a classic New York Italian-American.

Frank Prisinzano grew up making pasta at his grandmother's kitchen table in Queens, NY. Now that very table is the premier seat at Frank, his first restaurant in the East Village.

Every year, Frank makes a sort of personal pilgrimage back to his ancestral stomping grounds, to refresh his Italian heritage, to rejuvenate his Italian menu, and rediscover the achingly beautiful people and land that created his family legacy.

In the 2nd season of SAUCE'D, Frank returns to Northern Italy to go truffle hunting with the enigmatic Igor and his rambunctious truffle-hounds. More adventures ensue when Frank visits the Salone del Gusto, the Slow Food culinary mecca, and more fertile farmlands, ancient salumerie,organic cheesemongers, and well-dressed winemakers! Never without an opportunity to showcase his irreverent NYC wit and culinary sass, Frank continues his gastronomic rambling ever planning the next sojourn!
