Frances Tariga-Weshnak from "Top Chef" is one of the chefs competing in season 13 of the Bravo reality cooking competition. She is the executive sous chef at Catch NYC. She has an Associates Degree in Culinary Arts. Her favorite simple fall dessert recipe is Turon (Banana Spring Rolls with Jackfruit).
 
Born and raised in Philippines and trained in Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine, cooking is not just a job for Frances Tariga-Weshnak, it's her passion and career. She loves pork, as it was a staple of her diet growing up in the Philippines, and uses every part of the animal in her cooking. She has traveled the world working for several royal families and speaks six languages — English, Spanish, Russian, Arabic, Tagalog and Urdu. If she were a food, she says, "I would be a jackfruit as it looks intimidating but once you eat it, you will say, 'I had no idea it's sweet and tastes amazing!'"
