Meals By Mel

My Story

Meals By Mel was created in 2016 when Melissa decided that her passion for cooking was deeper than the pot, she has always loved the traditional, family-oriented cooking style. Hence, the slogan: “a taste of home, away from home”, showcases her love for food and most importantly, people. Always feeling the need to satisfy people’s tastebuds, Melissa developed her concept of your favorite Southern comfort foods.
