Michael joins the team at The Dorchester at an incredibly exciting time as the famous hotel has recently embarked on a significant renovation, the first phase of which will be revealed in September 2022.

Speaking about Michael’s appointment, executive chef of The Dorchester Mario Perera, said:I am so excited to be welcoming Michael to The Dorchester team. He is a true genius in the kitchen, with the unique ability to combine mastery of technique with astonishing creativity. I’m looking forward to Michael revealing his creations and to him taking our pastry offering to the next level for our guests.

I am honoured to be joining one of the world’s most famous hotels, especially at this momentous time in its 90-year history” commented Michael.

“My focus will be to elevate the afternoon tea offering to ensure we continuously surprise and delight our guests who should always be introduced to the exceptional things in life.”

He has represented the UK for the Coup du Monde de la Patisserie in Lyon, France, since 2019, and in 2021 the team finished fourth in the competition, the highest the UK pastry team has ever placed.
