Micah has never had a single bite of pork or shellfish until the age of 18, as the son of an orthodox Catholic priest who strictly followed religious kosher law. Now he’s obsessed with pork and everything that comes from the sea. Micah is the co-founder of Chefs Who Surf, an organization that promotes sustainable seafood and ocean conservation. He serves as Executive Chef at Los Angeles’ The Standard Hotel, and has been featured on StarChefs.com, was the opening chef for Venice Beach’s Hotel Erwin where he served up what Food & Wine magazine hailed as the “perfect post-surf breakfast,” featured in various food and travel magazines and was named Pasadena Weekly’s “Rising Star Chef.” Micah named his twin daughters Saffron and Sage to ensure the culinary thread continues through his bloodline.
