About Me

I have been cooking professionally for a decade. I have been an Executive Chef in chicago for the past 5 years working in different service and menu styles. My passion for cooking came thru my Sicilian roots watching my mom cook family recipes when I was a kid. I fell in love with the industry and the organized chaos of service at my first kitchen job. I am currently an Executive Chef in the West loop neighborhood.

  • Chef Michael was great! His food was fabulous and he was attentive and courteous. He worked with us to create separate meals for certain guests due to allergies. We enjoyed the evening and most of all- the food!

  • Chef Michael was the absolute best!! Each course was delicious and special in its own way. The food, the presentation and his overall demeanor made the occasion overly exceed all expectations. He clearly is a skilled chef and we look forward to having him for another meal in the near future.

  • Chef Michael went out of his way to accommodate all of our requests. He customized the menu to reflect our favorite foods, and had a variety of subtle incorporations that turned classic dishes to gourmet dining. He came prepared so that we weren’t waiting food each course and did a great job of cleaning up after himself. I would recommend Michael as your at home chef for any occasion! We will definitely be asking him to return!

  • Chef Michael was very professional! Everything was exquisite, from the quality of ingredients, to how incredibly delicious the dishes tasted, to the presentation of each course! I highly recommend Chef Michael and will definitely be hiring him again! Thank you for making our evening!

  • Chef Michael was wonderful and we’ll be talking about the meal for years to come. He arrived on time and with all the supplies, even brought a cast iron pan to sear the steak. He shared insider knowledge about the west loop restaurant scene, taught us new tricks and French techniques, and cleaned behind us as we went. The meals were delicious and we feel confident that we could replicate it to wow friends and family. Michael is a laid back east going fun cooking instructor! He even emailed us several other recipes for free after. We loved the left overs and are so glad we hired him for our 2 year anniversary dinner at home! Highly recommend.

  • Michael was amazing! Super professional, the food was five stars delicious, my kitchen was super clean when he left. It couldn't have been a better experience; we can't wait to have Michael cook for us again!
