Meet Our Executive Chef...

Michael Bruno

E

xecutive Chef Michael Bruno chose his career path very early — he was only ten years old. As with many young boys, he had considered becoming a police officer because he wanted to catch the bad guys, but fate had something else in mind. Michael grew up in Etobicoke and one day found a torn up old Betty Crocker cookbook and with half of it missing, the first page featured a recipe for Curry Tuna Salad. He set out to the kitchen to make it and enjoyed the satisfaction of sharing a meal with his parents and brother and sister. Michael’s parents encouraged his new interest, so many configurations of tuna salad were created until he decided to turn the page and try other recipes.

In his last year of high school, seventeen-year-old Michael continued his pinpoint focus on becoming a chef. He completed the Cooperative Program hours at the landmark Old Mill in Toronto and over the next four years added the college-level apprenticeship hours earning the rank of Junior Sous Chef. As a student of the three-year Apprenticeship Program at Humber College, he was required to log 6000 field hours; a seven day a week commitment of two days of school followed by five days of work. No doubt, this grueling schedule was intended to allow the cream to rise to the top. Trained and 21, with an urge to spread his wings, he joined the staff of the Toronto Cricket Skating and Curling Club, a facility boasting a dining room overlooking the skating rink where members could watch skating legend, Elvis Stojko train. Four years later, an opportunity for Sous Chef of Woodbine Race Track was undertaken but only for a short time for the General Manager of The Old Mill saw his resume for Restaurant Chef and immediately re-hired him. There he remained for two years when a unique opportunity arose. For the next ten years Michael worked alongside owner Peter Bochna at Absolutely Fine Foods where he not only prepared fine gourmet foods for the store-front but also had the good fortune to cater personal parties and large-scale events in exclusive spaces including The Carlu and The Maple Leaf Centre. Add to this, private airline in-flight catering services with gourmet meals for the jet-set and upscale events including The Toronto Film Festival. However, for Michael, he is most proud of the butchery skills honed through Peter’s grasp of the true and timeless art of butchery. Peter has ruefully remarked that “no one is teaching the younger generation how to be true butchers…I’m trying to teach my staff how to coax the best flavour and texture from meat at every stage.” As a result, Michael has spent half of his time honing the skill of butchery and meat aging techniques, skills he enjoys applying here at BGCC.
