About Me

Chef Michael Salmon

Working in professional kitchens since I was 15, my passion for the culinary arts runs deep. Sharing my knowledge with enthusiast students has always been a highlight of my career. I was the chef/owner of the Hartstone Inn in Camden, Maine for 23 years, and for the past 12 years, my wife Mary Jo and I have been leading foodie cooking trips to Europe. After graduating from the Culinary Institute of America in 1988, I was a chef with Hyatt and other resorts, was named Caribbean Chef of the Year during our years in Aruba and have taught private and group cooking classes for many years.
