Miami native and James Beard Award-winning Chef Michelle Bernstein teamed up with The National Pork Board to debut an e-cookbook, “Cooking For Comfort” just in time for the colder weather months. The e-book, which includes some of Bernstein’s coveted family and favorite photographs and stories, features her homemade Chorizo & Cheese Empanadas with Avocado Crema recipe (generations old) and her Country-Style Ribs with Mojo which provides a modern take on comfort infusing a contemporary interpretation of mojo with a traditional classic of country-style pork ribs.
Since the pivotal Mango Gang era in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, almost no other Miami chef has made as big a splash on the national culinary scene as Chef Michelle Bernstein. A Miami native, this passionate culinaire has dazzled diners and critics alike with her sublime cuisine and a personality as bright and vibrant as the Florida sun. “My food is luxurious but approachable,” says Bernstein, a James Beard Award winner (Best Chef South 2007) and author of “Cuisine a Latina” (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt 2008).
