Melissa is an omnivore who never met a vegetable she didn’t like. When she’s not making up her own recipes and condiments like flavoured-salts, hot sauces and preserves, you might find her at a cozy music venue or working on a DIY sewing project. Melissa loves demystifying cooking and occasionally hosts food workshops to help build participant’s confidence in the kitchen. She’s curious about pretty much everything and everyone and dreams of running a bed and breakfast when she retires from her day job; until then, she’s plotting to host a few house-concerts in her living room.
