The foodservice world lost a culinary shining light last week when chef Michael Potters passed away suddenly.
Potters was most recently executive director of The Culinary Arts Prince Edward (The CAPE) in Picton, Ont., but his career included many stops along the way, including chef/consultant at the Spoke Club in Toronto, former GM of the Little Inn of Bayfield, chef de cuisine at Hockley Valley Resort, chef at Angeline’s Inn in Prince Edward County and Milford Bistro, to name a few.
The London, Ont. native was a graduate of Sir Wilfred Laurier University and studied Culinary Arts at George Brown College.
During his storied career, Potters trained, mentored and inspired many young chefs in the industry.
He leaves behind his daughter Mia, family and countless friends.
A private internment will be held for immediate family in London, Ont. following Potters’ cremation. Two fundraising events in support of mental-health awareness and suicide prevention are being planned — one in Toronto and one in Prince Edward County.
