ANNA & MICHAEL OLSON
Food Network Chefs
Anna & Michael fell in love in the kitchen. They met and worked together at Inn on the Twenty in the Niagara region, where Michael was Executive Chef and Anna Pastry Chef.
Before the meeting, Michael had spent many years leading kitchens in Ottawa, Oakville and Toronto, after graduating from George Brown College. Anna arrived in Niagara from New Orleans, Texas and Colorado, after graduating from Johnson & Wales University.
Anna & Michael both collaborate and work independently. Michael teaches culinary arts at Niagara College and Anna is the host of numerous cooking shows on Food Network: “Sugar”, “Bake” and “Fresh with Anna Olson”. The couple has 7 cookbooks, two of which were a team effort, with more in the works.
Embracing an enthusiastic but relaxed approach to professional and home cooking is a key philosophy for the Olson’s, along with a common-sense approach to cooking seasonally with locally sourced ingredients.
