Just when you thought you couldn’t love Michelle Obama more, the universe gives you another reason to adore her.
The former first lady wanted The Bear-Naked Chef aka gay chef Adrian de Berardinis to work with renowned chef Art Smith on her Becoming book tour.
A vocal LGBTI rights supporter, Michelle Obama also recently revealed in her memoir that she and her daughter Malia snuck out of the White House on the night same-sex marriage became legal in the United States.
The Bear-Naked Chef and the First Lady
This has been a good year for chef de Berardinis.
The chef became a web sensation after starting his own YouTube channel where he cooks everything showing off his muscles and wearing nothing more than an apron.
After his hit digital series Quickies and the one-night only event at Lady Gaga’s father’s restaurant, this is set to be one of the greatest accomplishments for the most popular gay chefs on the Internet.
de Berardinis announced his new exciting gig on his social media channels.
‘ULTIMATE CAREER HIGH!!!! This has to be the most thrilling and incredible honor….to be working with @thechefartsmith on Michelle Obama’s “Becoming” book tour starting today in Chicago,’ he wrote in an Instagram post on Tuesday 13 November.
He also added: ‘We are feeding the former (and only) 1st Lady and her guests for the next month in 12 cities across the nation. This has to be the greatest privilege…of my entire life, really. I’m over the moon!!!! Follow my upcoming posts for food pics and hopefully some cute photos with us and Mrs. Obama…’
‘I’ve developed a crush on the First Lady’
He posted a new snap on the social media today (16 November).

#BECOMINGMICHELLEOBAMA DIARIES, DAY 2: I have developed a crush on the First Lady. I’m in total awe of this incredible human being. The kindness, humility, and generosity is unexpected and surprisingly refreshing from one of the most famous women on the planet. She ate only my soup today (roasted tomato with gluten free mini grilled cheese) and she to me said “this soup hits the spot”. I melted. Also, Beyoncé is here.
