About the Chef
Chef Michael Dolente’s passion for cuisine and hospitality was inspired at a young age by his grandmother. He began his career in such local kitchens as The Cellar, The Henry House and the Delta Halifax, before moving to Toronto as sous chef at Thompson Hotels and later banquet chef at Shangri-La. Dolente appeared on Food Network’s Chopped Canada and competed in the Hawksworth Young Chef Competition where he earned first place in the Toronto heat. Michael returned home to Nova Scotia and The Carleton in 2017 where he has been the Chef for two years. Michael and his team earned silver in 2018 for the Canadian Culinary Championships (Canada’s Great Kitchen Party).
