MICHAEL YOUNG

CHEF DE CUISINE, RUMFIRE POIPU BEACH

Chef Michael Young joins Sheraton Kauai Resort’s RumFire Poipu Beach culinary team as Chef de Cuisine. In his position, Chef Young oversees the kitchen at the resort’s signature restaurant and oceanfront hotspot. His philosophy is to let the ingredients he works with speak for themselves, and he has ignited inspiration into the RumFire menu through the introduction of new, locally sourced items such as Niihau lamb and Makaweli beef. A seasoned culinary professional, Chef Young has over 25 years of experience from the front of the house to his most recent role as Restaurant Chef at The Grand Wailea on Maui. Chef Young holds an A.O.S. in Culinary Arts from the California Culinary Academy and began his culinary career as an apprentice under Michael Mina in his Michelin-starred restaurant Aqua where he became a sous chef.
