During his time in restaurants, there were two major issues in the industry that became evident to Chef Michael. First, people need (and mostly want) to be able to feed themselves and their families on a daily basis in a timely manner - which means, eating at restaurants on a regular basis is out of the question. Second, the “chef life” of studying for 4 years at a fancy and expensive culinary school, barely making enough money for rent, let alone to pay back those student loans, is not a sustainable lifestyle. It was the result of these two findings that the Food Fire + Knives brand was born.
Food Fire + Knives prides itself on offering chefs an additional creative outlet that also provides them with supplemental income. For the past 3 years, Food Fire + Knives has been serving up fresh, local and delicious fare through their private dinners and interactive cooking classes in the Charleston, SC area.
