Celebrity chef Michael Mina has certainly conquered the world of haute cuisine. Through his Mina Group, he operates more than a dozen award-winning high end restaurants around the world, with his namesake eateries in San Francisco and Las Vegas regularly earning Michelin stars.

But now he is setting out to conquer a different realm: The web. Along with his co-founder business partner Tanya Melillo, Mina has launched a startup called Cook Taste Eat that aims to be the online destination for all things food, ingredients, and recipes.
