Michael Patlazhan from "Top Chef: Boston" is one of the chefs competing in season 12 of the Bravo reality cooking competition. He works as a private chef in Brooklyn, New York. He earned his degree in Culinary Arts from The French Culinary Institute. His favorite simple fall dessert recipe is Black Cardamom Sponge Cake, Pumpkin Ice Cream, Sweet Potato Cheese Cake.

Until 4 years ago, Michael Patlazhan was not a chef and hardly a cook; he was a culinary admirer and an eater. He was in a comfortable finance job but felt he was missing out on his true passion, until one day he picked up a knife and a pan and hasn't dropped them since. Michael continued to work full time in accounting while studying at the French Culinary Institute on the side.

After graduation, Michael became a line cook at Park Avenue Winter where he worked in a high-pressure, fast paced environment. Michael spent his off hours perfecting his skills and experimenting with modern cooking techniques, eventually leading him to begin his own catering company. He loves having the ability to be creative and to design his own menus that deliver a unique experience to clients.

Michael's goal is to bring a high-end restaurant into the kitchen of all his customers while creating flavorful and beautiful-looking dishes. One day, he hopes to establish a boutique restaurant that lets him share his love of food with others in a supper club-like atmosphere.
