My name is Michele and I'm a newbie on this site but I'm not new to the culinary world. I first started working in restaurants in 1976 at age 16. I've pretty much been here ever since. During the course of my career I've owned a personal chef service, catering company and cafe. I also taught the Continuing Education Classes for the University of Louisville. I have never really been to culinary school, I learned my craft from the great chefs I have worked with over the years. My dream, which I'm working on to make it happen, is to relocate to the US Virgin Islands in 3 years and open a beach hot spot. :roll: Nice to be here with yall!!
