Michael Prete

Chef

Michael has been in the industry for over 25 years. He offers slightly outside the box approachable comfort foods. Growing up in an Italian family in suburban New Jersey with both parents that cooked, he grew his love for food from an early age. Since then, with no formal schooling, he started off as a dish washer, then graduated to prep, to line and through the ranks with roles as Executive Chef and Food & Beverage Director. He has a background in luxury Inn's, Private Country Clubs and private chef work, catering and restaurant consulting. He opened up 'The Kitchen' in the seacoast of New Hampshire with his friend and business partner, Matt Greco to mimic delis from the tri-state area where they grew up. His passion for food and steering away from the "norm" when it comes to catering has made Portsmouth Catering the success it is today.
