Melissa Palinkas

Melissa Palinkas is the owner and head chef at Young George.  Her passion for food really kicked off when she was 26 and moved to London on a working holiday visa.  When she returned from travel she was 31 and ready for a great career in cooking.

Her food philosophy is based around zero waste and using every part of the plant or animal. She uses leaves to make a tasty edible garnish, dry peelings to make her own seasoning, and ferment stalks to make condiments for her dishes.
