I'm Melanie Robinson. I'm a Wife, a Mom, and a Chef.
At 30 I choose to return to school to pursue a love of cooking. I enrolled at Georgian College with the support of my husband, family and friends.
When I stepped into school for the second time, it couldn't have felt more complete, this is what I was to do with my life. To show people love through food.
During school, I challenged my self at every opportunity that I was presented with. Since I was returning to school for the second time around I had to push and challenge my self. I competed in several competitions, became the junior president of the Muskoka Chefs Association, won a stage to Kelowna BC with the Canadian Culinary Federation in 2012. Most recently competing on Chopped Canada in season 3 episode 9 and winning my episode against 3 other Chefs across Canada.

This dish is our spin on Chicken Marbella or as we call it in the café, Half Past Hen. We highly recommend you try this as it is an instant favorite around the café.
