Save The Date: Cooking with Michelle Bernstein
Bernstein: Cooking by the book
Mark Tuesday, March 10th in indelible ink and reserve now if you fancy the chance to cook with Miami star chef Michelle Bernstein: Bernstein will be demonstrating recipes from her new book Cuisine a Latina that night for a Miami Slow Food event sponsored by Whole Foods.
In case you've had your head stuck in a vat of mole for the last decade, Bernstein is the irrepressible chef/owner of Michy's in Miami, ex-ballerina, graduate of Johnson and Wales, Food Channel personality, Iron Chef competitor, Bon Appetite, Golden Spoon, and James Beard award winner, Delta Airliines consultant, and Top Chef judge. Bernstein's got a new tapas place called Sra. Martinez on 2nd Ave., and she's been hired to put together the menu at the forthcoming Omphoy in Palm Beach. Her Slow Food menu looks like a bunch of small plates you could recreate at home for a fabulous party: Shrimp on toast, chicken mango sandwiches, lamb cigars, watercress salad, and more.
Tickets cost $150 each inclusive of wine (courtesy of Elizabeth and Tom Smith) and must be reserved in advance: The class is limited to 40 people. Email Slow Food maven Donna Reno at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your place.
