Chef Mike Maracle
No matter how good the golf experience, everyone looks forward to enjoying delicious food before or after their game. Executive Chef Michael Maracle is guaranteed to enhance your day with his culinary expertise. Chef Mike brings with him a youthful enthusiasm and passion for food that is evident in every item that leaves his kitchen!
Formally trained at both George Brown and Humber Culinary Schools, Chef Mike credits his mother and his family background for instilling in him his love for food. Much of his inspiration comes from growing up in Kapuskasing in northern Ontario. Family gatherings occurred often and food was central to the festivities. He began cooking when he was about 11 years old and was often found in the kitchen helping to prepare dishes that were inspired by his French and First Nations background. Mike admits his “must-have” kitchen utensil is his chef’s knife and he is as interested in preparing your omelette as he is in your Beef Wellington. Mike has honed his skills as Executive Chef at fine dining establishments, and at banquet facilities preparing meals for hundreds! No matter how fancy the dish he prepares, however, he still goes back to the basics as his starting point, including using good quality ingredients (his favourite seasoning is sea salt), and remembering that any meal you cook should be good enough to satisfy your mother!
We look forward to introducing you to Chef Mike. If you are thinking of hosting a banquet or private party, he’d be delighted to provide you with a “sampling” menu. Otherwise be sure to drop by the restaurant and check out one of his creations on the menu… we’re sure you’ll enjoy your meal (after all he cooks everything as though he’s preparing it for his mother!).
PS: you can check out Mike’s recent creations and try them in your own kitchen.
