Michele Chandler


Michele Chandler started her food career at the Hazelton Café and Fentons – a rich learning environment that encouraged her to further her hospitality education. She graduated from Cornell University’s School of Hotel Administration, enhancing her experience with seasonal work at Stadlanders, L’Hotel, and The Four Seasons. Michele also taught quantity cooking while Cornell was in session. Her first job took her to Hilton Canada in Montréal, but she had the most fun cruising the Atwater and Jean-Talon Markets on the weekends, and learning what real bagels are.

She realized quickly that you can’t quell passion easily and wanted to share it with others, so Michele and a partner opened a tour company called Unique Routes, specializing in experiential and novel jaunts for small groups of women. Tours included a cheese tour of Paris and a day of walking the markets under the Brooklyn Bridge. These experiences drove Michele to pursue a writing career, specializing in culinary tourism. Her writing credits include NOW Magazine, Saturday Night and corporate and not-for-profit communications.
