TEXT BY SANDY LINDSEY
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.
