Yesterday we wrote of Food & Wine magazine naming her cookbook Cuisine a Latina as one of the top 25 of the year. Earlier in the week we noted that her Sra. Martinez restaurant made Esquire's list of 20 Best New Restaurants in America. Today's Michelle news concerns an upcoming "California Girls" dinner that will celebrate the food and wines of top female chefs from the west coast -- including two greats, Traci des Jardin and Nancy Silverton. Takes place at Michy's restaurant Wednesday evening, October 28th, at 7:00 p.m. "sharp".
