Macy's Culinary Council Hosts A Cooking Demonstration By Michelle Bernstein

May 11, 2013

Last week I mentioned how Macy's is kicking off their summer with their American Icons campaign. In conjunction, the Macy's Culinary Council is kicking off cooking demonstrations across the US. Our first demonstration here in the 305 is by none other than Miami's own Mrs. Michelle Bernstein. It's happening May 23, 2013 at the Aventura Macy's Home Store. Don't know who she is? Well you best recognize. Michelle is the person behind the restaurants Michy's and Crumb on Parchment. Mrs. Bernstein is the host of Check, Please! South Fl. She's also known for kicking Bobby Flay's ass on Iron Chef back in 2005 and if that isn't enough, she is a 2007 James Beard Award winning chef (it's like an Oscar award for chefs).

Other than being all sorts of critically acclaimed and successful, she's what my abuela would call, "Un pedazo de pan." She is very involved Common Threads, a non profit organization that works towards educating children on the importance of nutrition and physical well-being,and to foster an appreciation of cultural diversity through cooking. If you've ever had the pleasure of meeting her, she's very sweet and sassy.

So what can you expect at this cooking demo? Bueno, Chef Bernstein is going to be cooking up some of her favorite American dishes. Also, if you spend $40 or more in the Home department on the day of the event, you'll get a $10 Macy's Gift Card and a copy of Chef Bernstein's cookbook Cuisine a Latina, which she will sign following the demonstration.
