Comedian, writer Mike Glazer (HBO, Food Network, Funny or Die, BuzzFeed, FOX, truTV, FUSE, High Times, Fullscreen, The Chive, CBS, UCB Theatre, and Second City Chicago ) won third place on America’s Worst Cooks in 2014 but has since graduated a culinary program and been able to work on sets like The F Word with Gordon Ramsey and co-hosts a food podcast called Weed and Grub.  He has been following his love of food with increased food related appearances, leading to many types of opportunities. So, he seemed like a great person to bring along to Macy’s to interview Macy’s Culinary Council Chefs Anthony Lamas of Seviche fame and James Beard Award Winning Crumb on Parchment’s Michelle Bernstein, also known for her many television appearances.

Here, find the audio interview between Glazer and Chef Bernstein,  who later gave a demonstration and tasting of her Sweet Lemon Tea Brined Fried Chicken and gravy, Braised Greens and Rose Kissed Cupcakes to just over 100 eager audience members on the third floor in the home department of Macy’s at Oxmoor Mall.

Bernstein is also the author of “Cuisine a Latina” and Host of Check Please South Florida (WPBT2) and Host of Soflo Taste (Channel 10).
