This article contains plot details which are crucial to the story.
Michel first appears in Scenario 1, when his nephew, Armand, visits him and asks what happened to his restaurant. Michel closed it down due to the small amount of customers, his prostate condition and not wanting to be absorbed by OmniFood. He gives Armand the keys to his restaurant and guides him through the tutorial, giving him the basics of running a restaurant. He also guides Armand in Scenario 3 through his first cooking contest.
In Scenario 6, Michel gives Armand the location of two of his old chef friends, Thierry Perregaux and Pierre Germain, who now work for La Lune Rouge, a restaurant that pays little attention to food quality, and more to the bottom line. Both chefs remember Michel as a very passionate cook.
Michel then makes a return in Scenario 8, where he announces Armand that the bank has decided to give him a raise in his credit limit, after seeing him perform in the Italian Local Cooking Contest. He also informs Armand in Scenario 9 that his fish shipment has arrived at Red Apple.
- He is one of the two characters that are voiced in the game, the other being Armand LeBoeuf.
- His name may be a reference to Michel LeBoeuf, an American bussiness author and consultant.
- He is the first NPC encountered by Armand the Campaign.
