Michelle’s passion for food developed at a young age. Growing up with a grandpa who was an organic farmer and surrounded by a family of talented cooks, it was obvious that food was going to play an important role in her life. Her love for Michigan and its beautiful four seasons has built a strong foundation for her creativity. She loves to recreate food from her travels and she is always whipping up seasonal fare at home. Her style of cooking is seasonal simplicity and her kitchen motto is “What Grows Together Goes Together.” Her goal is to create recipes that are simply delicious and inspire people to cook seasonal local food in their own home. She hopes her recipes and techniques will help people build confidence and creativity in their own kitchen. Recipes will be available through our quarterly Food and Travel Magazine.
