We were fortunate to be paired with Chef Mike and his team when we hosted a couple of events for the Tour de Forks series at our home in CB a few years ago. Those events were always fun and entertaining, although with a much larger crowd in support of the local arts community we never got to know him well on a personal level.

We had Michael at our home this past weekend for a small group and everything that evening from “soup to nuts” was amazing. We challenged him with helping us arrange a seafood night and the menu he created was fantastic! We started with Garlic Mike’s magical grilled oysters, moved to crab and corn chowder, a salad and the Brodetto di Pesce as our main course. The preparation of every course, the attention to detail and presentation of each was perfect!

The evening was an outstanding experience with an entertaining, charismatic, passionate chef that no one in our group will forget. Not only was the food excellent, but the evening was also incredibly fun! We look forward to the next time we are able to have Mike and his team at our house.
