Chef Michelle Bernstein headlines this year’s Citi Taste Of Tennis, the must-attend event for South Florida foodies that brings together professional athletes, top local chefs and luxury brands for unforgettable evenings of gourmet food, interactive sponsor experiences and appearances by the world’s best tennis players. Miami’s homegrown Bernstein is renowned for her sublime cuisine and personality as bright and vibrant as the Florida sun. “You don’t need heavy-handed techniques and over-the-top presentations to make a dish work — it’s about amazing ingredients, layered flavors and simplicity,” says the James Beard Award Winner & Author of Cuisine A Latina. “My style of cooking is inspired by my own food memories and it’s the easy, soulful cooking that I remember from my travels. I cook the food I love and I think that love translates to the diners.” Bernstein and her husband/business partner David Martinez own and operate MBC Michelle Bernstein Catering Company as well as her wildly popular café concept, Crumb On Parchment. The Citi Taste Of Tennis event is created and produced by AYS, a woman-owned business founded by mother/daughter entrepreneurs Judi & Penny Lerner; TasteOfTennis.com.
