Meet Michael

Founder & Personal Chef

Born and raised in Ottawa, I have always been extremely passionate about the culinary arts which started from a young age. After high school, I graduated from Canada’s premier culinary school; The Culinary Institute of Canada in Charlottetown PEI, and have practiced culinary coast to coast.

I have worked in restaurants in the Maritimes, back to Ottawa and all the way to the west coast in the wine region of the Okanagan Valley. I won two silver medals representing U-25 Culinary Team Canada in Luxembourg before eventually moving back to my home town to start the next chapter of my career.

In 2019 I launched my business; InHaus Cooking. Over the last few years I have prepared over 300 private dinners including cocktail parties & weddings and worked full time for families in Toronto, in the 1000 Islands, and most recently in Turks & Caicos. Over this time I have also worked for a variety of different Ambassadors in Ottawa and opened multiple 7-course pop-up restaurants.

The InHaus Cooking team thrives on using seasonal, high quality ingredients and will fully customize any menu that will suit your palate, allergies, and dietary restrictions. I look forward to creating a memorable moment for you and your guests at your next event.

Happy Customers!

"My wife hired Michael to prepare a birthday dinner for me and a small group of friends. The evening was beyond perfect. The food was phenomenal and Michael’s explanations of his background and each course was engaging and entertaining. Malcom provided great wine pairings for whole meal. All of our guests couldn’t stop raving about the night. If you are thinking about hiring Michael, don’t think twice about it. You won’t regret the decision!"

"This was a first for us and am so happy we decided to do it. Michael is a true professional and one of the best dinner experiences I have had to date. I would recommend him to anyone who truly enjoys a good experience. Not only was the food top notch but he was very personable and a pleasure to have in our home, he definitely went above and beyond! If you are thinking about it stop and just book it!"

- Tom Bastien

"We hired Michael for our 40th birthday dinner celebration and he did an amazing job! He was extremely professional and his food and service completely exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is thinking of having a personal chef come to their house for a special occasion. *His rose-lavender sorbet was one of the most amazing things I have ever tasted."
