Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Michal is the quintessential "Nice Jewish Girl." It was in 2009 during her gap year in Israel that she discovered her passion for cooking and entertaining. Upon returning to New York, she studied Hotel and Tourism Management at NYU. During that time at NYU, her East Village apartment was home to a potluck meal almost every weekend. In 2017 Michal started showcasing some of her meals via her Instagram account. After fielding many requests for recipes, tips, and tricks, she decided to start her website, www.noshpitality.com, where her recipes and tips could live. Michal currently lives in Manhattan, New York with her husband.
