Michelle originates from New England. She grew up boating and sailing with her parents throughout the Long Island Sound and north Atlantic, frequenting the beautiful waters of the BVI as well. Educated at Manhattan College, followed by a career in Public Relations, she's been living in NYC for the last 5 years, exploring her fascination for food and enjoyment in entertaining. Growing up cooking with her Italian family and learning from her aunt, a French trained chef, inspired her culinary interests. She also spent several months studying at L'institut de Catholique in Paris, traveling across Europe, taking classes on wine pairing and learning how to appreciate some of the best rosé France has to offer. She has a taste for adventure and meeting new people from around the world.
