Michele Ragussis - New Chef at The Pearl (Rockland, ME)

MidCoastMaineiac | May 25, 2012 10:50 AM

Heard about this the other day, figured I'd pass it along to my fellow Chowhounds!

Michele is currently a finalist on Food Network Star, and she has also be featured on Chopped and 24 Hour Restaurant Battle (which she won). I don't know if you all have seen her yet, but she certainly comes across as being really honest & genuine...and a great chef to boot.

Sort of interesting that Rockland will now have restaurants that feature a Bobby Flay "slayer" (Lynn Archer of the Brass Compass and Archers)...and now somebody from "Team Bobby Flay" on Food Network Star.

What a score for The Pearl! It has suddenly shot to the top of my "must do" list. Sunday nights at 9pm she'll be having a viewing party...where you can watch the current episode and she'll be cooking the dishes featured on the show that night.

I'll attach some links here that talk a little about Michele.

The MidCoast rocks it again.

(the last one is her own personal blog...pretty slick...makes me wonder if a new Food Network show is in the works?!?)
