Hero Profile » About Franco Carubia
Franco was born and raised in Hertfordshire, England as the youngest of 3 children to an Italian mother and Sicilian father. His passion for food began at a young age with family trips to Italy which deepened his love for fresh foods. His passion made him realize that the next natural step was to attend culinary school in England. After a stint working under the former Executive Chef of Harvey Nichols London at the Hanbury Manor Golf & Country Club, Franco decided to take his talents across the pond to begin the next chapter of his culinary career. After some time in Vero Beach, Florida, Franco found a new home in New England where he has worked at the acclaimed Chatham Bars Inn, the Federal Restaurant and Barbara Lynch's Sportello. In 2009 Franco found himself in the kitchen of Frank Mclelland's acclaimed L'Espalier rising through the ranks as Sous Chef, and now, holding the position of Chef de Cuisine of Sel de La Terre in Boston's Back Bay, where Franco's passion, flavors and elegance are on display on every plate.
