S&R Ambassador Michael Varga - Chef

Michael Varga

Michael Varga first learned about food preparation in the family kitchen. His Hungarian father, a self-taught chef, laid the groundwork for Michael’s personal approach to cooking. His father’s motto, “When it tastes good, it's ready,” continues to inspire Michael s culinary creativity. Michael’s mother, a native of Egypt, introduced him to the spice profiles of the Mediterranean and Middle East, which have become staples in his cuisine.

A seasoned Vancouver firefighter, Michael’s skills have been tested in the firehall kitchen. Fueling hungry firefighters with interesting and delicious meals while sticking to a budget is a challenge Michael enjoys.

In 2016, Michael competed on the reality television show, “Chopped Canada,” taking home the $10,000 cash prize and the title of Chopped Canada Champion! He also earned high praise from Iron Chef Susur Lee, who expressed his appreciation for Michael’s style by declaring: “There are no rules in fusion.” 2018 brought a new opportunity to showcase his cooking skills under intense pressure: Master Chef Canada - season 5. Michael went on to become a finalist and the opportunity to work with a number of talented chefs elevated his skills and pushed his limits in the kitchen. Michael strives to continually evolve his reach as a health enthusiast, chef and a family man.
