MICHELLE FUERST grew up in California, studied the culinary arts there and worked in prominent restaurants in the Bay Area before coming to New Jersey 11 years ago with her husband. Today, they live with their grade-school-age daughter in Princeton, where Michelle “likes to be able to walk to get a lemon, a cup of coffee and to see people. I like being around life.” The private chef also likes buying produce from area farms, including Jeff’s Organic, Chickadee Creek and Cherry Grove.
