About Michael Patlazhan

I take simple ingredients and dress them in something extravagant. My focus is creating flavorful, beautiful-looking meals with an emphasis on innovation and purity. I am always trying to incorporate a wide range of ingredients into my style and seek to craft meals that are bursting with flavor. I incorporate my love for cooking with the technical knowledge that I have acquired from my studies at the French Culinary Institute. My arsenal now includes techniques inspired by Molecular Gastronomy, but I believe that food doesn't have to be fussy or difficult in order to be interesting and delicious. I have been experimenting recently with deconstructing classic dishes, highlighting each component with top-quality ingredients and creating a new eating experience.
