Being raised in an Italian/Greek family, it was easy for Chef Michele Raussis to fall in love with food. It was this culture and her passion for serving friends that brought her to study at Johnson and Wales in RI. Turns out this badass doesn’t like regimented education and decided to spend the next 15 years getting hands on experience as an Executive Chef. Her passion for food and bringing people together landed her on Season 8 of Food Network Star, where she competed to the final rounds. Today, Chef Michele is the executive chef at The Pearl on The Pier, in Rockland, ME.
