Theo is the Executive Chef for Elsewhere Events Group designing food concepts for their venues around the world as well as one off high-profile events. Theo has also been called upon as a guest chef for international projects including events at the Sheraton Grande in Bangkok.

No stranger to TV, Theo has appeared on The Food Network, BBC and Sky amongst others. Theo is often called upon by the national press for comment and interview on private dining, food and drink trends and for recipe inspiration.
Theo is known for cooking ‘elegant village food’ inspired by the flavours of Cyprus and his travels but also creating family friendly food that satisfies the reality of juggling life, work, children and still trying to eat well.
Check out some of Theo event reviews.
After reaching the heats of the semi-finals on Masterchef 2014 Theo resigned from his IT business of 15 years to follow his passion for ‘food’ and never looked back.
Theo started as a private chef and ran a successful pop-up restaurant selling out in under a minute and with over 700 still on the waiting list in case another popup night is launched.
Theo Michaels was born in London (a while ago), has lived in America for five years and eaten his way through a lot of the globe with a backpack. He is now married with two children and no way will his wife backpack again.
