As a kid, I looked forward to two things: watching television and eating dinner. As an adult, I look forward to two things: making television and cooking dinner.


Hi. I’m Grant Melton. I’m a Brooklyn based cook who’s been creating new recipes (for better or worse) since I was a kid growing up surrounded by bean fields in Brookville, Ohio.

I never went to culinary school, but I am lucky enough to have received a first class food education from none other than Rachael Ray. I landed my dream job working in and around the kitchen of her talk show, Rachael Ray,  right out of college and have been learning on the job ever since. These days I wear many hats: on-camera content provider, contributor to Rachael Ray Every Day magazine, host of So Basic on YouTube, Emmy award winning Producer and not to mention an infamous cookie creator and entertaining aficionado. In addition to my work at with Rachael, I’m also a contributor to NYT Cooking, Food52 and have been featured on Refinery29 and Bustle.


Thank you for visiting my site. I hope you enjoy my recipes as much as I have enjoyed creating them. Sign up for my newsletter below so we can keep in touch. I’ll send you a monthly email full of yummy recipes and cool party ideas but for the latest news, be sure to follow me on social media or just send me an email, I'd love to hear from you!
