My name is Michael. I spent over a decade following university in the restaurant industry, in one capacity or another. I’ve been fortunate to be surrounded by great food all my life, from the childhood family dinners to the long hours spent in restaurants. This blog has became an extension of my love and passion for all things food and drink. And the people that bring you together because of it.
I started this blog after my wife suggested combining my two original passions, food and writing. So that’s what I did. It’s slowly become my personal canvas to document my love for food and the memories that are formed from it. It gave me an outlet for my passions and a recipe page for my family and friends. This blog is a collection of all my recipes, photographs and life stories. Deeply personal, always heartfelt.
Most of my memories growing up involve food and people. Family get togethers. People sharing themself and their food with me. And it’s continued that way today. Except now, I’m the one showing my love to those closest to me through my food. And stories.
I live just outside of Toronto with my lovely wife, Wendy, and our dog and cat, Jack and Aerial. One family trying to make it, one day at a time. One post at a time. One life.
