Louise Mellor past away in March 2019 after a long struggle with cancer. Her bright outgoing positive personality made her a favorite food blogger with her fans and we are thrilled to have worked with her on several fun food videos as she shared her love of Idaho potatoes and our mascot Spuddy Buddy. Our thoughts are with her husband and family.
Louis had a degree in culinary arts and was formally trained in classical French cuisine at the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu. Having worked for top catering and event companies in Los Angeles and Orange County, California, Louise developed her artistic eye for event design and has mastered a level of attention to detail that was is evident in all of her work. As a chef she refined her style and technique, cooking for some of the most discriminating palates. Chef Louise was a seasoned culinary instructor and demonstrator, whose contagious excitement about retro food & entertaining created a fun and casual environment for learning. As an experienced food stylist for television and media, Chef Louise was a perfect fit for working both in front of the camera as the “talent” as well as behind the scenes as a food stylist and culinary consultant.
You will be missed as part of the IPC family, Louise.
Established in 1937, the Idaho Potato Commission (IPC) is a state agency that is responsible for promoting and protecting the famous "Grown in Idaho®" seal, a federally registered trademark that assures consumers they are purchasing genuine, top-quality Idaho® potatoes. Idaho's ideal growing conditions, including rich, volcanic soil, climate and irrigation differentiate Idaho® potatoes from potatoes grown in other states.
