Reviews about Michael
I would recommend chef Mike for any occasion. Mike is a true professional and beyond reliable. I hired him for a full summer and he always showed up on time and ready to please…going above and beyond the call of duty at times. He is open to various preparations and styles of cuisine and will cater to your taste. Beyond that, he is a kind person and very easy going. It was a real treat to work with him and I’d do it again.

Chef Michael was great - Extremely attentive, and very thorough with all of the details - This was the first time we hired a chef, and everyone was over the moon with the evening - Michael made it perfect

Absolutely tremendous! Not only did he create wonderful dishes that fit the theme of the event, but he gave some great advice on how to make the event even better. When I had questions he was super responsive, and he has done and seen it all, so he had all of the answers. Also gave a great recommendation on a mixologist who was fabulous as well. After dinner he was very amiable and sociable with all of our guests - felt like he was just one of our group (in a good way).
Could not recommend him more.
