Let us accentuate your event by providing exceptional service with flair, fun and intentional foods filled with love. 


Meet Our Chef

Juliana Renaud

Meraki Soul is the love-child of Head Chef & CEO Juliana Renaud. Chef Julie is of Haitian and European heritage, and she grew up in the back of her parents' Caribbean café in Brooklyn, New York. 

In true avant-garde fashion, Chef Julie has worked her way through some of Atlanta's best kitchens over the last 10 years, and has developed a unique set of skills and a palate that is unmatched. 


In 2018, Chef Julie decided to disrupt the local food industry by creating a catering company featuring foods and flavors from around the world that are:

  • high quality

  • seasonal

  • minimally-processed

  • farm-to-table & locally-sourced when available 

  • plant-forward (no worries, we prepare meats/seafood too!)


Chef Julie enjoys traveling domestically and internationally when she can - it's her favorite way to learn about global foods!

A Word on Serving global
"Plant-Forward" Soul Foods

Here at Meraki Soul, we love plants just as much as we love meats & seafood. Please note that we do not exclusively serve vegan or vegetarian global foods.


However, we do aspire to change the food narrative that vegetables are mere accompaniments to a main meat or seafood entreé.


Our goal is to reorient and expose our clients to the joys and flavors of consuming plants. We believe that plants can stand alone, and that we do not NEED animal protein to make a meal. 


This said, we still love to curate custom menus for events that accommodate all food preferences, including meats and seafood.
