About Michelle Bernstein, Host of WPBT2's Check, Please! South Florida
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 Check, Please! South Florida, Michelle still manages to make appearances on a variety of national television shows.
Diners can sample her signature haute cuisine served up in a warm, unpretentious setting at her namesake restaurant Michy’s, which opened in the “upper east-side” of Miami in 2005. Michy’s is what Bernstein says she has always dreamed of owning; a cozy and approachable restaurant with her husband David Martinez. The neighborhood haunt was quickly dubbed one of the “Top 50 Restaurants in the Country” by Gourmet and “Best New Restaurant 2006” by Food and Wine. Just a few blocks away, Crumb on Parchment, offers a casual, cozy cafe serving breakfast, lunch, and mouthwatering baked goods handmade by her mother, Martha.
Alongside her restaurant ventures, Bernstein has managed to launch 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. Bernstein was recently named one of “The 25 Most Influential Women” by People en Español (October 2011), in the issue honoring Hispanic women who have risen to the top of their fields.
