Chef Michael Kirkwood grew up in Ajax, Ontario where his appreciation for food and local ingredients flourished at a young age. Inspired by his parents’ gourmet interests, he began working in local restaurants as a teenager where his passion for cooking grew. He then went on to study culinary arts in Toronto at George Brown College, and has since established his reputation in several of Toronto’s top kitchens, including Avalon, Toro, Opus, and Turf Lounge.
Chef Michael now runs the Birchwood Kitchen, a mobile culinary studio providing cooking classes for both children and adults, as well as private seasonal tastings and small event catering.
Every Friday The Depanneur invites a different guest chef – amateur or professional – to come down and cook their favourite dishes.
