Chef Meleka McGee cooks with her heart and soul. Growing up in Southern Illinois and familial roots from Mississippi and Alabama, her purpose is to create REAL FOOD for REAL PEOPLE that is full of flavor.
Cooking was something that always intrigued her. Being the middle child in a very loud world, her voice became her food. Every time she served a dish the room got quiet. All the attention was on her and her food. She loved it. The compliments and smiling faces were confirmation that she had done something right. The experiences she gained cooking at home has provided her the most knowledge of adding FLAVA and soul to a meal. Her mother would just “FEEL” the ingredients and make it happen. This was the start of something “FLAVORFUL AND GREAT”.
Chef Meleka had tapped into a world that was all her own. Nobody had the same interpretations that she had; she was finally an individual and speaking her own language known as “FLAVA”.
