Jonathan Melendez was born and raised in sunny Los Angeles California. After working for several years in the culinary industry, decorating cakes, catering, cooking and baking in several bakeries, he has turned his passion and hobby for being in the kitchen and behind the camera into a career. He attended California State University Northridge where he graduated with a Bachelors of Art degree in Photography in 2011. He currently develops and photographs recipes for his food blog, The Candid Appetite which he started three years ago. One of his greatest passions in life is being in the kitchen cooking and baking on a daily basis, photographing the food he makes and sharing it with people who love food as much as he does. He spends most of his days eating nothing but doughnuts and potato (anything).
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.
