Michael Van de Elzen is one of New Zealand’s most loved chefs having starred on a number of television shows, most recently TVNZ’s Kiwi Living. He started a career in the food industry at the tender age of 14, working in some of Auckland’s and London’s landmark restaurants, while owning several of his own over the years. Michael is passionate about healthy food, particularly now his wife Belinda and their girls, Hazel (6) and Ivy (4) are living on a life-style block out west Auckland. Look out for his Good From Scratch logo which guarantees products that are healthy and his recipes that are healthy, convenient and quick to prepare.
Michael is dyslexic so understands how important being able to read is; he was very excited and humbled to be asked to be an Ambassador for Duffy Books in Homes in 2016. He is also an ambassador for Kiwis for Kiwi which aims to protect our native bird and its natural habitat, ensuring the species flourish for generations to come.
