Michelle Bommarito Takes the Cake
By Rick Coates
Food Network celebrity chef and world-renowned wedding cake designer and pastry chef Michelle Bommarito is a ball of energy. Her friends, family and colleagues find it hard to keep up with her. So what is Bommaritos secret to what seems to be endless amounts of energy?
I consume super power foods, and I eat five to six small meals a day, said Bommarito. I also learned some life lessons along the way that the secret to healthy living is moderation in all things, including work.
Bommarito will be making several appearances this weekend at the Chefs Challenge at Shanty Creek Resort. On Friday, April, 24 she will be giving a free seminar, Eat Well, Move Your Body & Watch What Happens. Bommarito also expects have several impromptu discussions throughout the weekend on wellness and eating healthy.
While Bommarito is most known for celebrity chef appearances on the Food Network by winning the first wedding cake challenge and finishing second twice, and most recently appearing on a new show, Last Cake Standing, she is now focusing her talents and energy on helping people learn to live and eat right by offering seminars all over the country.
I am still making wedding cakes and other pastries but Im being more selective on what a take on. The wedding cakes I make require me to be on location for three days as I have to put the cake together, said Bommarito. I have always had a passion for eating right, but at first I didnt understand the moderation aspect of it all. I took things to the extreme.
