Michael Mina

Introducing Michael Mina, the award-winning celebrity chef whose philosophy on cooking is his philosophy on life: create balance and harmony. He started in the kitchen when he was very young, and is still as intrigued with the process as he was when he was a 15-year-old Garde Manger in a small French restaurant in his hometown.
