CHEF MICHAEL FIRST RECOGNIZED HIS APTITUDE AND LOVE OF BAKING WHILE HELPING HIS MOTHER MAKE EXCEPTIONAL DESSERTS AS HE GREW UP.
He went on to study the art and science of baking and making fine pastries, and graduated as a pastry chef in Vienna, Austria. From there, he's put his gourmet expertise and love of his craft to work in some of the world's most respected luxury hotels and resorts.
Now Michael's Cookies are served as favorites in the same premier settings in which he built his career. Michael’s Cookies are a favorite treat served globally by luxury and full-service hotels, bakery cafes, restaurants and other elite purveyors in search of the best.
Why cookies? Michael started with cookies, if you ask us, we’ll explain how cookies are the perfect comfort food, helping customers recall fond childhood memories. Michael’s Cookies are so good that they're the closest a customer can come to fresh-from-the-oven homemade - gourmet cookies like these can't be found just anywhere!
Michael's Cookies continues to grow steadily, primarily by word-of-mouth referrals of satisfied customers. Michael's offers its renowned cookie dough in more than twenty flavors, including the ever-popular Vegan options.
