NEXT GUEST CHEF: Feb. 18 vs. San Jose Sharks

Michael Saperstein - Chef of E & M Munchies

Originally from Baltimore, Chef Michael Saperstein unknowingly began his culinary career working summer cooking jobs as a teenager. Chef Michael graduated Magna Cum Laude from Johnson & Wales University in North Miami in 1999 with a degree in culinary arts. Since then he’s worked at some of the Great Restaurants in New York City and South Florida.

Chef Michael has been awarded numerous 4 star reviews for his cuisine, been featured on Food Network, and The Cooking Channel. He describes his food as “Seasonal Fare” prepared with a modern French twist, focusing on exceptional ingredients, big flavors, with a fun and playful twist.

In 2006, Chef Saperstein partnered up with successful Entrepreneur Evan S David, to form E&M Innovative Foods. E&M was created to provide out of the box expert consulting for the food industry.

From 2007­2015 Evan & Mike consulted, and ran an extremely successful outside sales force for K&G Brothers Wholesale Meats (2007 – 2012), Halpern’s Steak & Seafood (2012 – 2015). In the summer of 2015, Saperstein and David went on their own and started Sunshine Provisions, a Specialty Food Company and Boutique Protein Processor. Sunshine Provisions was developed to connect to the artisan food producers to South Florida’s finest food service establishments with an “Old School” hands on approach to food processing.

In 2008, Evan & Mike created E&M Munchies Holding Corp. The purpose of E&M Munchies is to take their skills to the street to create the much needed “Slow Food, Fast” concept. E&M created their first QSR “Quick Service Restaurant” concept Charm City Burger. Charm City Burger, a smashing success was the catalyst for creating El Jefe Luchador “Hardcore Mexican Street Food.” Utilizing the valuable lessons from Charm City Burger, E&M created El Jefe to be their prototype for an aggressive QSR chain model. El Jefe Luchador saw great growth over the first few years in business, earning amazing reviews and accolades. The Second El Jefe Luchador opened in May of 2014 in the Boca Raton Town Center Mall, to great success.

In 2011 E&M created The Rebel House, a renegade restaurant concept to become the forerunner in the gourmet casual segment. Rebel House has been garnishing rave reviews since opening and has become one of the top culinary destinations in South Florida. Evan & Mike are always looking to expand the group, next up for Munchies is a Boutique Food Market & Deli in Deerfield Beach.

In 2011 Chef Saperstein was given the honor of being named top 10 chefs in South Florida for his visionary thinking. He currently overseas culinary operations for E&M Munchies, E& M Innovative Food, and Product Development and Procurement for Sunshine Provisions.
