Chef Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson's culinary career catapulted when he was in Paris in 1999. After many years he moved back to the States and joined the staff of The French Laundry in California. Still determined to open his own restaurant, he and his partner, Bobby, moved to Colorado. In 2005, “Food & Wine” magazine named him one of the “Best New Chefs,” and in 2006, his restaurant, Frasca, was named one of America's top 50 restaurants in “Gourmet” magazine's annual restaurant issue. Today, Lachlan applies his culinary talents at Frasca to create innovative yet traditional dishes true to the indelible spirit of Friuli, Italy.
