A Full Taste For Those Who See Life Differently
Chef Michael Elsen, a graduate from the Culinary Institute, is an innovative modern plant-based chef who uses his 25 years of experience to demonstrate that vegan cuisine can be both creative and satisfying. He uses the extensive palette he grew up with to present plant-based cuisine to a broader audience.
His understanding of Umami, or savory taste, drives him to combine elements of all five basic tastes to create dishes that are complex and delicious, but also subtle, balanced, and wholesome. Using flavor pairing science, (combinations which give exuberating glory to fruits, vegetables, and herbs), he elevates plants to an esteemed throne in the culinary world.
A student of bold theories of molecular energies, chromatics, and intentional cooking causes him to be mindful of why he cooks, for whom he cooks, and the desired emotional responses for the diner. Upon those assessments he creates not only a plate of food, but an orchestrated experience of pleasure and palette.
