Cook and media personality Melinda “JuJu” McCarty was born in High Point, NC. Her mother and
grandmother, whose ancestral heritage includes German, Irish, Cherokee and Italian, serve as strong
influences on her cooking. "I grew up surrounded by wonderful cooks” she states. Never one to back
down from a challenge, Melinda also served as a corrections officer for a Georgia state prison. But she
eventually found her way back to her first love - cooking and opened a restaurant in Barnesville, GA.

Melinda recently signed a deal with Diamant Entertainment Group and Dresden Street Productions to develop
a TV cooking show. There are many of these kinds of shows on television but what sets her show apart from
the crowd is simply Melinda being herself. People love her because her easy approach to cooking, her down-
to-earth style and engaging personality is what they can relate to.

Melinda does not present herself a chef. She respects those in the culinary arts that have formal education
and experience. She considers herself to simply be a southern cook that finds value in the cooking traditions
of the South. Her recipes and cooking methods are practical, simple and fun. Her typical dishes only include
ingredients one would find in the average kitchen and the local supermarket. She understands that time is a
most-valued commodity that people struggle with in today’s times. She states “Having fast, easy to prepare
meals gives families more time to spend together at the dinner table”.  

Melinda is currently working on her first cookbook and is developing her own signature Bar-B-Q sauces just in
time for the summer cook-out season. She has also been cast in minor roles in TV and movie productions
Taken 3 (20th Century Fox), The Haves and Have Nots (Tyler Perry Studios) Survivors
(Starz) and Being Mary Jane (BET).

Melinda shares cooking tips, shopping advice, and recipes on her website  and her
Facebook page She resides with her family in Barnesville, GA just
south of Atlanta.
