Miami, Fl.: FoodBrats.com ~For some of us in the Social Media and cookbook industry, a lifestyle penchant is simply in one’s blood. Chef Michael Bennett is the premiere member of the socially prominent – FoodBrats.com – with his three published cookbooks.

Chef Michael Bennett, an acclaimed culinary and cookbook innovator, featured in international Social Media, print publications and receiving multiple culinary awards from nationally recognized organizations, Chef Michael Bennett has helped to promote South Florida innovative cookery to the Social Media savvy, for more than a decade.

Caribbean-based, healthy cuisine was not always Chef Michael Bennett’s specialty however, since 1990 after joining with the Rare Fruit Society International of South Florida, changed his life forever. He was accustomed to eating bold, richly flavored foods that are heart-healthy. Later down the road he incorporated a new West Indian style into his California-Asian food styling at the 26 year restaurant landmark – Left Bank restaurant. This is where he brought in the Caribbean flair and created special dinner events that grabbed the attention of social media savvy foodies and reporting agencies from around the world.

Writing a New Cookbook, gives a Chef a New Outlook…

Chef Michael Bennett was also instrumental in changing attitudes towards working in the service industry with his latest innovative book “Culture of Cuisine“ as it will edify young and unsure new chefs on how to advance in this culinary business. This new book describes and highlights accomplishments of socially-savvy generations of South Florida’s “Top Chefs” as it describes how to use Social Media to advance one’s own career and what steps are involved in accomplishing it.

As Social Media gets all of the attention these days, it’s important to understand why customers are turning to social media for customer service and support. While some younger consumers may be more naturally inclined to use social media, the primary reason for people is that they didn’t get good customer service to begin with through in person at the table, over the phone, by email or your website.

One of the most valuable lessons was how to manage yourself and your staff. “Culture of Cuisine” speaks about what ideals are expected of them by the food and beverage industry. It is how you should represent yourself in this social-savvy discipline that is covered robustly in the second and third chapters of the book.
