Introduction: I am a Certified Member of the United States Personal Chef Association (USPCA) who holds his ServSafe Certification provided through the State of Florida. I bring the excellence of fine dining to your home. My signature dishes have satisfied many clients. I specializes in a diverse range of cultural foods with roots in French American Cuisine. My experience includes preparing specialty items: game meat (deer, buffalo, elk), alligator, snails, plus freshwater fish and seafood. I am passionate about cooking and providing you and your guests a restaurant-quality experience without leaving home. My goal is to bring an exceptional five-course meal to you, offering an evening of elegance and charm in your home, at your corporate event, or your Florida vacation home. I do not prepare any soul food or comfort foods. I am a professional chef who focuses my complete energy on my clients' satisfaction from one evening of relaxing and dining, family and friends dining experiences, in-home family meals, special occasions, weddings, corporate and business events, and vacation meal services. I cater to your tastes and customize each menu after the event is secured, which includes the preparation of fish and seafood, chicken or steak, and vegan or vegetarian dishes. I address any dietary concerns or restrictions during my hands-on development of your menu. My skills and abilities come from my education and fifteen years experience in fine dining. To secure a service a payment of 60% must be made to secure your service. The balance is due the day of the event. A confirmed location with a full a kitchen is required. Additional upgrades after the initial booking require an additional deposit to cover those expenses. I provide plates and silverware up to 18 people upon request. Special requests are welcome and will be reflected in the final cost. I recommend a contacting a rental company for dishware and settings for large events. Upon approval, I allow clients to reschedule their event once.

What a tremendous experience we had with Chef Mike!! We were celebrating our 10 year anniversary at an Airbnb with our children and granddaughter and Chef Mike was wonderful. From the appetizer to the dessert, everything was magnificent. The food was delicious, he took his time to prepare exquisite dishes for the palate. He even took the time to make a special little dessert for our 3 year old granddaughter!! Thank you so much Chef Mike for such a great experience!! We recommend him 100%!!!!
