Retired Chef Michael Tuma Still has the Chops
Having grown up spending time in his uncle’s restaurant, The Embers, Michael Tuma knew at an early age what he wanted to do with his life. The Mount Pleasant resident was classically trained by French chefs whom he counted among the best in the world. In fact, Tuma was one of a select group who trained at the world-renowned Greenbrier under the direction of Herman G. Rusch. While the award-winning chef has been retired for two years, he’s not finished cooking anytime soon. We’re honored to share with you his recipe for Scallop and Sweet Corn Salad.
