About me

Location Burlington, Ontario, Canada
Introduction Chef Mike came to cooking later in life than most, making the leap from amateur to culinary professional in his late thirties. Before that, he spent 20 years in manufacturing, from car parts to barbecues. When his wife Marilyn was offered a two-year contract in Melbourne, Australia, Mike had an opportunity to consider a new career. Mike completed his training just as Marilyn's contract came to an end. They wrapped up their adventure via the South Pacific, New Zealand and Fiji. Returning to Canada in spring 2004, they settled in Burlington and Mike launched Thyme Management Personal Chef Services.
