  • HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Since our NYC launch, our children's culinary series was a huge success and a global culinary journey! In addition to our classes at Gym-Azing, our numerous private family culinary classes, we also partnered up with Garden School, an elite private school based in NYC to host our culinary classes at their summer camp. It was a most fulfilling and amazing experience for Culinary Wellness!! Now, our adventures have lead us to the sunshine State of Florida. We're excited to share that we completed our first Spring eight week culinary workshop and it was a great start here in Florida! August was another huge success with our sold out series of FUNday SUNday Culinary Exploration classes at Peace By Pieces Community Wellness Center in Palm Coast. In September, we had a special Family FUNday SUNday at Huckleberry Farms where our students cooked with ingredients from the farm, met the resident farm animals and the families took a tour of the beautiful farm grounds.  In October, we dedicated the month to our Private Sunday Series wherein families welcomed us into their homes and in November, we were back in NYC for a charity event, a requested private group class hosted by a former client whom I'm grateful for giving me the opportunity to do what I love in such a limited amount of time and in a New York minute, we were back in Florida! During the month of December, we hosted four private FUNday SUNday workshops and welcomed the holidays quite deliciously. We're  developing an Adult's Only Event at the Farm, one not to be missed as it'll be under the stars with food, wine and nature as our host! Our Moonwellness Sisterhood Circle is set to host our first 2020 New Year Sisterhood Gathering and Vision Board Journey Workshop, keep checking our website and FaceBook page for the dates and times.

In a few words...


"Maria's  nutritional workshops were extremely beneficial to our young dancers.   Instilling good eating habits at a young age is crucial in a dancer's  physical and mental growth.  Our students thoroughly enjoyed Maria's  hands on, fun & interactive approach in identifying proper nutrition  and what foods/ingredients one should and should not eat.  We look  forward to inviting Maria back for more of these sessions!" (Rebecca, AFA Studio Manager, NYC)

"My view on food & wellness completely changed  working with Maria.   I'm so appreciative of her knowledge, guidance, humor, late night  sessions, holding me accountable, and for celebrating each accomplishment with such genuine happiness and inspiration." (Joan D., Florida) 

"Thank you Maria for the private cooking class for my son and I. He first wanted to learn how to make veggie fried rice but then changed his mind and chose the dumpling class. Truth be told, those were the most delicious and easy to make dumplings and the ginger dipping sauce was incredible!! Looking forward to booking another class as you've inspired him to learn and help me cook." (Nadine K., NYC) 

 Such an amazing class! Chef Maria has inspired my girls and they are eager to learn everything in the culinary world! Thank you for Everything you do!! (Ilene T., Palm Coast, Florida)👩‍🍳🥰 

 Had a ton of fun at the Farm today! My son cracked an egg for scrambled eggs like a Pro. He and I both shook until we could not shake anymore and made butter! We planted some Basil and then we got a tour of the Farm. We saw cows, a bull, farm cats and fed goats, pet rabbits and learned about a rescued horse. Thank you and your team for this Farm class and for making it possible for the children Chef Maria! 

It was a great day and my son is looking forward to taking your 

private classes. (Angela LP., Palm Coast, Fla.)
