Let’s Fork Tonight!
Couples rarely enjoy a third wheel on a date, but Chef Michael is no ordinary third wheel. The certified personal chef whips up restaurant-quality dishes—such as pasta crepes stuffed with ricotta and napa valley lamb—in home kitchens, transforming cozy nights into special occasions. He can also craft smorgasbords of tapas for ladies’ nights, cater small dinner parties, or enhance football games with handmade snack spreads. In his hands-on cooking classes, he teaches his students not only to make similar repasts at home, but to pair their food with appropriate beverages, such as steak with pinot noir, or swordfish with a cocktail of ocean water and Great Blue-dini Kool-Aid.
