ABOUT CHEF MELANIE CUARTELON -
Chef Melanie Cuartelon is a second generation Filipino American born and raised in North Florida (Orange Park). Her passion for the kitchen stems from her mother and her grandmother. Seeing them cook and bring joy to others through food brightened Melanie’s eyes, knowing that in her future, she would be no more than 10 feet away from a kitchen!
She is a graduate of Johnson and Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island for Baking and Pastry in 2007, finishing her schooling at the Rosen School for Hospitality at UCF with a Bachelor of Science in Restaurant/Food Service Management in Orlando, Florida in 2009.
Since graduating, Melanie has worked in a variety of kitchens and bakeries, having landed her currently at the Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort and Spa. Since 2012, Melanie has been developing the hotel's pastry program. In 2018, she took the role of Banquet Sous Chef and has been able to incorporate her heritage into her menus. For Melanie, having the chance to make people smile through her food is the most gratifying feeling she could have.
