Melissa Miranda

Musang Seattle
Owner and Executive Chef
Melissa Miranda grew up in Seattle, where she learned from her Filipino family, the importance of cultural diversity in food. At an early age, her father exposed her to the incredible world of cooking and the flavors of his home country and childhood. He always insisted on using fresh quality ingredients and being passionate about preparing food. Her parents instilled the importance of experiencing many diverse cuisines from around the globe through frequent travel.  
Melissa graduated from the University of Washington with a Bachelor's degree in Sociology and discovered the fast-paced culinary world was truly her passion. She decided to move to Italy to pursue her culinary career to attend Florence University of the Art's Culinary Program. 
After five years living and working in Italy, Melissa moved back to the States spending two years in New York, consulting and working, expanding her knowledge of management and techniques of cooking.

Melissa is currently back in Seattle cooking at Bar del Corso and chef/owner of pop-up, Musang, a Filipino Pop Up Restaurant.

We focus on creating community centered brunches, dinners and events. Musang is home cooked and made from the soul.
