Our Story

The Elevated Cook is all about taking the everyday kitchen to the next level!

Our lead culinary consultant, Francis "Franky" O'Dea has worked in some of the top kitchens in Washington D.C. - including the White House! 

Though he's worked at the top, Franky believes you can find superior cooking methods in the most unexpected places - a line cook, a school bake sale, Grandma's tattered old recipe box. 

Franky believes in finding the very "best" way to prepare a dish. He says that, "while there are a million ways to the top of the mountain, only one path is the best...meaning it's the easiest, fastest and yields the best results."

The Elevated Cook brings you the very best way to make a homemade meal...without the complicated, showy hassle sometimes associated with culinary technique.
