This week: Crab Timbale, from Azul, Miami

Michelle Bernstein, chef at Azul in Miami, has made headlines with a style that features Latin flavors blended with Asian, Caribbean and classic French influences. Bernstein’s open white-marble kitchen is a signature of the restaurant, which is located in the Miami branch of the Mandarin Oriental hotel chain and also offers cooking classes to the locals and hotel guests.

More about the chef:

Bernstein, a native Floridian and a graduate of Johnson & Wales University, has appeared on the “Today” show and on several PBS specials. She has also been featured in “The New York Times” as well as “Bon Appetit,” “Gourmet,” “Forbes” and “Food & Wine” magazines. She has been named one of South Florida’s top chefs by “Ocean Drive,” “Florida International” and “Boca Raton” magazines.
