Chef Mike Griffin

Hi and welcome! I’m Mike, and this delicious website is my personal blog. I write, I cook, and I take pictures of delicious food. I’m a food enthusiast with an appetite for almost anything. I love to cook different dishes, but we’re not strictly anything when it comes to what we eat. I love desserts, especially straight up salted dark chocolate. I try to cook things that are practical, interesting, and delicious. I adore noodles, curry, lentils, and pasta. An excellent communicator, leader and problem solver, skilled in managing and developing staff.

Core skills:

  • Food safety & sanitation
  • Integrated flavors
  • Fresh, fun ingredients
  • Time management
  • Creative presentations
  • Passion to create new creative dishes



The inspiration for creating new and interesting dishes comes from the seasonal availability from local produce first and foremost; but also could include traveling, eating out, reading and sometimes just passing ideas throughout the day. I’m passionate about working with fresh produce, creating innovative dishes and improving my skills.



My passion for being a chef means never settling for what I know. I want to reach further, constantly adding to my knowledge and skills. I like to combine the fresh local ingredients that’s truly where the magic happens and the wheels start turning. I think the true test of a great chef is keeping things simple...

Cooking is all about people. Food is maybe the only universal thing that really has the power to bring everyone together. No matter what culture, everywhere around the world, people get together to eat."
