Melissa d'Arabian

In August 2009, Melissa d'Arabian won season five of The Next Food Network Star, beating out thousands of hopefuls for the ultimate dream job: her own Food Network show. Cooking from a young age and always passionate about food, Melissa pairs her varied culinary and life experiences to provide food lifestyle solutions and approachable recipes for all stages of life. During her early childhood, Melissa lived with her mother and sister and she learned about budget-conscious cooking out of necessity. Melissa began her professional career in consulting and eventually worked in corporate finance at Disney in Paris. While working there, Melissa met her husband, Philippe, who was born and raised in the south of France. They are now married and as a wife and mum to their four young daughters, Melissa embodies family home cooking at its finest.
