About our host - Melissa Clegg

A former aviator and photographer with a degree in business. Melissa’s roots are in the southern piedmont of Georgia and the coastal plains of South Carolina. At the young age of 12 she started working in a local market seafood restaurant and here her life-long romance with food began. This has lead to the proprietorship of 6 restaurant ventures in Athens, Georgia including The Last Resort Grill and Five and Ten. Her passion for food has led her and her family on many adventures including a move to Italy and extensive travels in Europe. Her strong tie to Charleston, S.C. brought her back to embark on her latest venture. Teaching culinary workshops will tie together her love for food and her passion for sharing her knowledge and experience with others.
