COMPETITION: World Recipe Championship
My Name is Michelle Basinski, I began my love affair with food when I was 10 yrs. old and it has only grown stronger and stronger ever since. It is the one constant in my life that I know will never leave my heart.I am a proud military wife of 21yrs.I am also a hurricane Katrina Survivor.I will say if it was not for this hurricane I would not have achieved the things I have in the last 2 yrs.I graduated with honors from LCB I also was named volunteer of the year two years in a row.Named student of the year for Le Cordon Bleu. Then named Student Culinarian for the ACFLV. In my future I plan to cook my food, teach kids to cook (10 to 12)year olds, I also plan to make this a nonprofit. I also am the private chef/owner of M&M LOVE. One of my Greatest achievements was to work for Chef Hubert Keller the last three years on his T.V. show Secrets of a Chef and volunteered for Project Dinner Table the last three yrs. I mentor culinary students in the art of impossible setups and in the art of networking and selling themselves. I love this and live for this.That is why I love to cook because you can see, taste and smell the LOVE.
