About the Owner:

Hello! My name is Melian De Carolis (Chef Mel). I am the owner of The Colors of Food, LLC. We are a family-owned business offering specialized cooking services in Pinellas County, Florida.

I am originally from Italy but I spent my teenage years in England and eventually ended up in America where I met my husband and we are now growing our family.

 

My passion for food started in Italy where I would follow my Italian grandmother around asking questions about cooking. I was always interested in her magical meals. To this day I have never found anything better! I apply her styles in my cooking  and each time I go visit her in Italy I learn more each time.

 

When I moved to England I got more curious about cooking foods from different cultures and so I started working at restaurants in the area where I made friends with the Chefs and started shadowing them. I learned a lot from them.

 

I moved to America because I had heard of a cooking position available where they also offer training and certification. So, I left the UK and headed to the US where I was professionally trained as a Pastry Chef.

How did I come to specialize in healthy meals?

 

With time, I learned about healthy diets such as Paleo, Keto, etc. which expanded my abilities to experiment and I came up with my own signature styles and flavors of foods.

 

Concurrent with being a personal chef, I also worked at a nutritional company for several years to gain more knowledge about health and nutrition. Now I can specialize my menus and help people improve their life with delicious high-quality food.

My bakery:

I love baking and not only I provide traditional cakes and desserts in CaraMel's Bakery but I also make Keto and Paleo desserts for my Meal Prepping clients.

I also won 5 awards as a wedding baker, check out TheKnot, Wedding Wire and  Experite.com.

Expansion:

The Colors of Food originally offered not only Meal Prepping but also Catering and Bakery. Early 2022, Chef Nicci Stokes joined The Colors of Food as Part Owner and then we divided the company into three. 

Catering with Colors, CaraMel's Bakery and The Colors of Food. Click here for more information about our 3 companies.

Eat Well,

Melian De Carolis-Culp
