Chef Micah Edelstein Drops By To Chat
Chef Micah dropped by to chat. Welcome to Blogging Top Chef Micah. We are pleased to have you as a guest.
Us: Why did you decide to become a chef?
Micah: Looking back I see it was always in me, my love for cooking, for food, for making food for people to experience and enjoy. I switched to catering because it was the only way I could see to be a full time mother and full time bread winner. Upscale catering meant I did not have to work every day of the week from 9 to 5 so I could do my other job properly. I did not want anybody else raising my daughter through these very important formative years. I knew I could do both. Matilda shops with me and preps with me, and then I go do the events--although I do have some clients that request her attendance. Now that she is getting older, I have more time and am starting to tackle new projects again with growing fervour.Us: Who are your culinary hero's?
Micah: My culinary hero growing up was Julia! There was and is nobody quite like her.
Us: If not a chef, then what?
Micah: Well, I have already tried editing and writing, and I still write now and am currently working on some children's books and a travel/cookbook. I often write poetry and paint fabrics, but I have yet to find how these things will put my daughter through school!
