Michelle Stern, founder of What’s Cooking, was a high school biology and environmental science teacher for 5 years prior to the birth of her daughter. At present, she balances the parenting of her two wonderful children and running this growing business. She trains and manages an excellent team of instructors, develops curriculum for our growing after school program, and teaches a variety of other What’s Cooking classes.
Michelle’s connections through What’s Cooking have lead to a variety of wonderful and unexpected food-related events.
- She received a grant from Heifer International to participate on an Educator Study Tour to Honduras in the summer of 2007, where she learned about sustainable development and the prevention of hunger.
- She was invited to assist her friends, the owners of Spread, in their catering job for the Celebrity Poker Tournament at the 2006 Emmy Awards.
- She also assisted her colleague, Jennifer Carden, in food styling for a Thanksgiving-themed Satellite Media Tour for Food Network Star, Guy Fieri.
- She has also been fortunate to meet Jacques Pepin and Mollie Katzen, both of whom praised her work on helping families cook and eat well together.
