Nine months after the death of her beloved husband Antonio, Michelle and her three daughters are keeping their Unica Cucina E Caffe dream alive. Michelle knows Antonio would be ever so proud of the way she and the girls, aged three, nine and 11, have held themselves together. She also knows the girls look up to her. She is their role model, and they in turn are her driving force every day of the week. She is determined to show them that even under the worst circumstances, life does go on. 

“We understand circumstances can change,” Michelle says. “We know things happen quickly. It shouldn’t stop you from being who you are. I’m not saying to ignore what happened, but it’s OK to move forward, to smile, to laugh. I do have my days though.” 

Organisation is key when you’re running a restaurant, you have three children and you’re an only child with elderly parents. Yet Michelle doesn’t shy away from stepping in as chef and even fundraising for Make a Wish Foundation, Frocktober, and breast cancer research. 

“The busier I am, the happier I am,” she says.  “My hubby and I began this dream and I’ve continued on. I love what I do. I’m here because I love what I do. I feel blessed for what I have.”
