Chef Michelle’s love affair with cooking began at the age of nine growing up in the inner City of Washington, D.C., just walking distance from the White House, while watching her grandmother Gussie cook daily meals which were often left to Michelle to complete. Throughout the years Michelle has developed skillful techniques in different areas of the kitchen including working with world-renowned Raw Vegan, Lou Corona. Her wide experience in balancing flavor, texture, taste and healthy eating brings the best of all cultures to the table. She mastered to perfection with proper on-the-job training in her own kitchens throughout the States while living in D.C., Atlanta, NY and SC. Almost eight years later she embraces her love for vegan cooking with creativity, passion, healing and love.
