Frank McClelland's initial interest in cooking began while growing up on his grandparents' gentleman's farm in New Hampshire. Throughout the years, this interest grew to become a passion and a career as one of New England's and the nation's master chefs. The summation of his love of local ingredients, along with classical French training and an edge for perfection, is reflected in the cuisine he has created at L'Espalier

By the age of 26, McClelland had already been a chef in two of the most respected local kitchens - The Harvest in Cambridge and L'Espalier. In 1984, he became Executive Chef at The Country Inn at Princeton in western Massachusetts where he evolved his personal style of cooking. Here, he earned a four-star rating from the Boston Globe as well as being named one of the country's top 25 chefs by Food and Wine. In 1986, McClelland returned to L'Espalier as Executive Sous Chef. Within two years, McClelland purchased the restaurant, thus fulfilling a lifelong dream.
