About Chef Kulin Froelich
Chef & owner Kulin Froelich has spent 13 years refining his culinary expertise.  He is a graduate of the Great Lakes Culinary Institute in Traverse City, Michigan. After graduation, he started his culinary journey in the kitchen of Chef Myles Anton at Trattoria Stella. Under Chef Myles' guidance, Kulin learned the true spirit of traditional Italian cooking. On his days off, he began a stagier with colleagues at nearby Tapawingo owned by James Beard award-nominated Chef Harlan "Pete" Peterson and operated by Executive Chef Tommy Kazabuski. It is there that Kulin was inspired by Chef Tommy to begin a lifelong partnership with the culinary world. When Tapawingo closed in 2009, Kulin decided to follow his culinary mentor to Chandler's a Restaurant in Petoskey where he proudly served as his Chef de Cuisine for 10 years.

Kulin has a significant repertoire of ethnic and classic dishes and possesses eminent knowledge of traditional, new American, and French-style cooking. Kulin is inspired most by the science behind health-conscious food preparation. By personally shopping for your pantry ingredients, he guarantees no azo dyes, harmful preservatives, chemicals, or shelf stabilizers that are often disguised as natural ingredients in your pantry.

How can I ask questions to the chef?
You are able to ask questions in the "chat" - a CTAC staff or volunteer will be reading questions to the chef as we go along for real-time Q&A.

Can I taste the food?
Since we cannot meet in-person yet, we encourage you to recreate this recipe at home while we work to invent smell-o-vision and taste-o-vision.

Will in-person culinary classes return?
Yes! We are hopeful that with the emergence of a COVID-19 vaccine, and enhanced safety protocols, we will return to in-person culinary classes at CTAC-Petoskey this spring or summer as allowed and recommended by the Michigan Health Department.
