Meet the Chef

His Dutch heritage, passion for travel and four years in Asia shaped his palate and inspired him to present various taste sensations within a single dish. Ingredients themselves are a source of creative inspiration for him.

Meet the Chef
Frank Schipper
Frank Schipper started cooking at the young age of 14, and unsure of what he wanted to do in the future, kept it as a side job while studying management and entrepreneurship. After receiving his degree, he realized his passion was for the culinary world and wasted no time in returning to his work in the kitchen.
He spent three years working at De Bokkedoorns, (a Two Michelin Star restaurant) and then served in some of the best restaurants in the Netherlands, where he trained in every section of the kitchen to become a complete chef.
Frank has organized two cooking events with one of his best friends, Tjitze van der Dam, where he cooked with a different chef every hour for 24 hours. The first edition had chefs in attendance with a total of 24 Michelin Stars and the second edition had a total of 36 Michelin Stars, including those earned by Sidney Schutte.
He loves the creative part of cooking the most, because you never stop learning. As the son of a farmer, he loves working with fresh ingredients.
Grand Velas and Sidney Schutte have given him the chance to grow and work with a motivated team. His goal is to make people happy and provide them with an experience they will never forget. Together with Vincent Colauto, he aims to ensure that Cocina de Autor becomes one of the best restaurants in Mexico.
