Happy New Year 2022! What can we say - 2021 was another year of sold out classes, new collaborations and amazing mini chefs! I'm extremely grateful for all the parents who have supported us in our culinary explorations with their children.
Our Table for Six Events - which had been a vision of mine for some time now came to fruition in 2021 and the feedback from our guests was amazing! Each event will be held a few months apart and inspired by the season. All ingredients are locally sourced via numerous farmer's markets and artisan culinary vendors. Our 2022 FUNday SUNday classes started with a love filled Valentine's Day class and now our spring classes have been scheduled and we're going Global!

COVID-19, Delta, Omnicron - What can we say, we are all still working through these current situations and hope that it will work out in the positive of ways. Just keep washing your hands, follow all safety protocols and continually boost your immune system with healthy meals. We truly enjoyed welcoming back all our aspiring chefs and to having them physically present chopping, reading their recipes, asking questions and exploring new foods is a great feeling. We're still on the look out for another team member to assist with any future virtual classes and all things technology!
We want to let parents know that we are continually proactive in maintaining a limited amount of students and ensuring parents that we continue to abide by all COVID safety protocols set in place. Masks, sanitizing, proper distancing all while creating a fun and educational experience going forward.
Now to reflect and recap on our amazing past classes: We successfully launched our Spring eight week culinary workshops which was a great start here in Florida! We had numerous sold out events of our FUNday SUNday Culinary Exploration Series and classes as well as another sold out Family FUNday SUNday event at Huckleberry Farms. The students cooked with ingredients from the farm, met the resident farm animals and the families took a tour of the beautiful farm grounds. We dedicated a month to our Private Sunday Series wherein families welcomed us into their homes to cook and explore. I traveled back to NYC for a charity event, a former client hosted a private culinary workshop for me to lead and whom I'm so grateful for and for allowing me the opportunity to do what I love in such a limited amount of time and in a NY minute, I was back in Florida! During the winter months, we hosted another four private FUNday SUNday workshops and welcomed the holidays quite deliciously. We hope to offer those events and others in 2022, as I cannot express our sadness of not being able to offer what we had in the works. I feel we lost a lot to COVID but on a positive note, it did provide us the time to get some other projects started and on my many To Do Lists. Our Moonwellness Sisterhood Circle Gathering and Vision Board Journey Workshops sadly took a seat all the way in the back due to COVID but I'm certain we'll gather sooner than later.

"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.)
