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,
Melinda recently signed a deal with Diamant Entertainment Group 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 including
Taken 3 (20th Century Fox), The Haves and Have Nots (Tyler Perry
Studios) Survivors Remorse (Starz) and Being Mary Jane (BET).
Melinda shares cooking tips, shopping advice, and recipes on her website
www.jujumccarty.com and her Facebook page www.facebook.
com/jujumccarty. She resides with her family in Barnesville, GA just
south of Atlanta.
