Meet Michael

Founder & Personal Chef

Born and raised in Ottawa, I have always been extremely passionate about the culinary arts. I graduated from Canada’s premier culinary school; The Culinary Institute of Canada, and have practiced culinary coast to coast.

I have worked at a fine dining waterfront restaurant in Charlottetown, two of Ottawa’s top restaurants; Supply & Demand, and Amuse Kitchen & Wine, and worked at 5-star Cedar Creek Estate Winery in the Okanagan Valley, BC. Most notably, I was selected and competed for U-25 Culinary Team Canada and won two silver medals at The Culinary World Cup in Luxembourg. I launched InHaus Cooking in February 2019 in Ottawa.

In October of 2019, I opened a sold out pop up restaurant for one night as the head chef. I have been the private chef for reputable clients on private islands which later brought me to the Toronto market where I would cook breakfast, lunch, and dinner for a family at a fine dining level. I look forward to sharing my experience and stories with you 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!"

- Kevin Graham

"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."
