Personal Chef & Sommelier

Enjoy a personalized gourmet dining experience in the comfort of your home.

Polk County's Personal Chef Vincent Von Fricken

To me, the best part of being a chef and wine sommelier is to use what I am most passionate about to offer the greatest pleasure for my dining guests to experience. My ability to enrich people’s lives by sharing food and drink with friends and loved ones gives me the most joy in my life.

“Food brings people together. It’s the most basic need of humans and one of life's greatest pleasures. The ability to move people with food is my greatest pleasure and passion.”
