Testimonial

Chef Maria is an expert and master of her craft. To say she creates masterpieces is an understatement. She is truly exceptional in everything she does. It not only looks great, it tastes outstanding. Her knowledge on many aspects of food and health correlation is educational and truly beneficial. She utilizes her expertise to give her clients the right balance between delicious and nutritious without sacrificing taste. She has a great personality too!

I hired Chef Maria to design and cook for a Mediterranean themed party. She did not disappoint! Her homemade Lasagna Bolognese, Meatballs, Stuffed Eggplant, Antipasto Trays, Pizza Rustica, and various Focaccia Breads left my guests licking their fingers. Everything was authentic with homemade ingredients, right down to the fresh tomato sauce using Roma tomatoes. It was exquisite and something I’ll always remember. She takes her family’s old world recipes and creates that authentic taste right in your home. The freshness permeates throughout the kitchen right down to your belly. She utilizes the best and freshest ingredients to create an experience you’ll never forget.

Best B.B.Q Ribs this side of the United States!!! Would love to have her secret recipe. The ribs just melted in your mouth with the perfect blend of spices. Also highly recommend her special seasoned Double Crispy Fried Chicken. I’m originally from Georgia and her recipes for Southern comfort cooking are right there with the best of them. Thanks, Maria you made me feel like I was back home.
