Mike

Owner/Manager

Mike grew up in Apex, and started learning how to cook in high school beginning with simple foods. While he attended Appalachian State University, Mike and his roommates would collectively cook a meal once a week. They named it “Italian Tuesdays” because they mostly cooked Italian foods and it generally occurred on Tuesdays. Mike enjoys seeing kids learning to cook at a young age. “Cooking is a great skill to have for anyone at any age,” he says. “There is a ton of variety in cooking and it's the best way to ensure that you eat healthy.” Favorite ingredient to use: Almost anything that includes Noodles. Favorite food to make: Chicken Alfredo. Favorite dessert: Brownies. Favorite kitchen scent: Chocolate Chip Cookies baking. Favorite Food Network Chef: Guy Fieri
