A successful Italian-Lebanese food connoisseur, Michel became captivated by his grandmother’s cooking while growing up in Milan and spent much of his childhood learning to reproduce the rich flavors of her dishes. He fueled his passion for cooking by traveling, dining in starred restaurants and experimenting with different blends of ingredients and flavors. In 2001, he opened La Posta, his first restaurant, personally handpicking and importing the ingredients. Michel has several accolades to his name, including the Grand Officer of the Star of Italian Solidarity, awarded by the President of the Italian Republic in 2006. Today, he is a member of the culinary elite and a successful television personality thanks to his show, Mr Gourmet. He continues to travel in search of new ideas to create award-winning dishes and concepts.
