Chef Melissa Neidlinger has always had a passion with food, and after graduating from Indiana University with a Bachelor’s degree she earned her Culinary Arts degree from the Le Cordon Bleu Culinary School in Chicago. It was there that Mel was able to turn her passion into a career. After a few Chicago winters, however, she was ready to trade in her snow boots for flip flops, and that’s just what she did. Even more fortuitous, she was able to find a venue in which to channel her love of cooking in the Caribbean: cooking on charter yachts.
Mel enjoys cooking just about everything! She has a deep appreciation for all cuisines; be it comfort food from her own Midwest roots, to international zest, to healthy and light. Mel’s favorite way to cook is to take something “ordinary” and add a special flair to make it stand out from the norm.
Of course, working on a boat in the islands would not be as fun if she didn’t enjoy the activities! Mel loves scuba diving, snorkeling, waterskiing, and just floating in the water. Mel looks forward to meeting you soon and showing you what she enjoys doing most: cooking delicious meals for others!
