WE WELCOME CHEF MICHAEL HOOBLER TO ENCANTERRA™ COUNTRY CLUB!
We are pleased to introduce Encanterra’s® new Executive Chef, Michael Hoobler. Chef Michael comes to us most recently from the Desert Mountain Club in Scottsdale, where he oversaw the kitchen operations in all five of the clubhouses in that community. In his twenty year career prior to Desert Mountain, Michael had long stints with such renowned venues as Desert Highlands and DC Ranch (Scottsdale), Boulders Resort (Carefree), and Montage (Park City).
Most notably, Michael was the Executive Chef at the Royal Palms in Phoenix from 1995 to 2000, a time period when that resort’s feature restaurant, T. Cook’s, was considered by Gourmet, Food & Wine, Zagat, and many others to be the premier dining experience in all of Arizona.
Chef Michael is highly regarded in the culinary world, and he brings a wealth of knowledge and talent to Encanterra Country Club. Michael’s interest in in the culinary arts began while working at his parents’ supper club at age 11, where he immediately began devoting his time to the study of food and cooking. His skills flourished quickly, and his talents were recognized early and often.
During his now nearly three-decade career in food & beverage, Chef Michael has been featured on both local and national television, as well as highlighted in numerous culinary publications. A “sign of arrival” for top chefs, Chef Michael has showcased his talents at The James Beard House in New York City on several occasions, earning praise from some of the most discerning critics in the world.
Chef Michael now joins our team here at Encanterra, where he will work with Sara Rainey to ensure that our dining, banquet, and events execution is second-to-none in the Valley. Over the course of the next few weeks, we’ll be hosting “meet & greet” events with our Members. Be sure to say “hello” to Chef Michael if you see him at one of our restaurants!
