Michael Savino, Michael's Cookie Jar
Michael is a professionally trained pastry chef with a degree from the Culinary Institute of America. His real education, however, took place during his 13 year tenure with the Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. After working with some of the finest culinary professionals in hospitality, Michael heard his calling to start his own business.
From the time he was a child, and throughout his career, Michael had a special place in his heart for cookies. These bite-sized morsels seemed, in Michael's words, to be poetry in food, seemingly simple in their brevity but complex and satisfying in actuality. Every culture of the world has its own sweet morsels and this universality seemed the perfect reason to focus his attention on cookies.
