Chef Maria created a wonderful cooking and learning culinary experience for us! Her confidence and warmth immediately puts you at ease and her love for her craft and food shows in everything she does! She shared several great cooking tips (she's skilled in multiple genres and techniques from baking to knife skills) and answered all our questions along the way. And of course, the food was absolutely delicious!
