Cooking With Friends 2

Michael Galata - Osteria del Circo, New York

Growing up in his family’s New Jersey restaurant, Michael Galata discovered a talent for cooking at an early age. After graduating from high school, he took over the kitchen and helped manage the business while earning his culinary arts degree. After working for two years at New Jersey’s Stage House Inn, Michael joined the staff of the Maccioni family’s Le Cirque 2000, becoming sous chef there at age 22. Today he creates fabulous Italian dishes as executive chef at the Maccionis’ Osteria del Circo. His passion for continually learning reflects the philosophy that “we can always grow and improve, no matter how satisfied we are with the current result.”
