Meet Michelle Roberts
Culinary Specialist, Michelle “Red” Roberts returns to the 2013 Taste of Home Cooking School on Tuesday, May 14, 2013, at Charleston Southern University's Lightsey Chapel. Roberts conducts Cooking School shows across the country. Her love of traveling to experience the flavors of different cities combined with her enthusiasm for cooking allows her to share her culinary passion with people just like you!
Robert's love for the kitchen started early? Roberts grew up helping her grandmother in the kitchen and knew at an early age that she wanted a career in food. And as an accomplished singer, she can combine her two “loves” of being on stage and cooking.
The passion continued from there, Roberts earned an Associate of Applied Science degree from Copiah-Lincoln Community College in Wesson, Mississippi and a Bachelor of Science degree in Culinary Arts from Mississippi University for Women in Columbus, Mississippi.
When asked what her favorite part of the Cooking School experience is, Roberts replied, “I love being on stage, entertaining, and sharing my love of cooking!”
“Michelle is an absolute favorite to our show! So many of our attendees rave about how her helpful her demonstrations are and how fun she is to watch,” Chris Zoeller, Summerville Communications Regional Advertising/Marketing Director and Taste of Home event coordinator.
Roberts resides in Calera, Alabama, with her two cats; Simon and Madeline. One of her favorite activities includes spending time at home watching good movies.
Roberts is looking forward to coming to the Lowcountry. “We're going to have a lot of fun at this event! Trust me, you don't want to miss it!” says “Red.”
