About the Host
Experience in the kitchen has made Michelle one of the most sought-after chefs in the television industry. For two years, Bernstein co-hosted The Food Network’s Melting Pot, where she introduced many Americans to the art of Nuevo Latino Cuisine. Bernstein would return to the Food Network years later to battle Bobby Flay on Iron Chef America, from which the Miami chef emerged victorious. Currently the host of WPBT’s Emmy-nominated Check, Please! South Florida, Michelle still manages to make appearances on national television shows, ranging from Top Chef and The Today Show to the Martha Stewart Show.
She also continues to consult for Delta Airlines, for which she creates in-flight menus for First and Business Class Elite. Most recently, Bernstein launched the Miami chapter of Common Threads, an after-school program dedicated to teaching underprivileged kids ages 8-11 to cook, socialize, and eat healthy one recipe at a time.
