Happy New Year!!!
What an incredible year we had - so lets recap 2023, our fun filled holiday themed classes, our annual 2K Family Fall Event in which the tacos the kids made for the horses were a hit!!
Check out our pics and reels on our social media platforms.
Our very First Children's Business Fair on July 15, 2023 was a successful venture! Over ten kid vendors sold their amazing crafts, products and/or services. Our local paper and a few media outlets came out and published a recap of our event. We were even on the Radio!!
Other 2023 memorable moments was our Table for Six Valentine's Day Event where our future chef's teamed up to learn about the function of dinner service in a restaurant setting. They worked the front and back of the house, prepped the menu created specifically for this workshop and ultimately served their parents the delicious meal they prepared!
Check out our recap Reel on Instagram!
Our Table for Six Events - which had been a vision of mine for some time has come to fruition and the positive feedback from our guests is truly appreciated! We're in the process of hosting another Pop-Up in February, 2024 in collaboration with Fissata Wines.
We concluded another amazing Global Passports Exploration Series where our travels ended in Spain and with a delicious Paella!
We collaborated with Charcuterie Dreams to host a Kid's Charcuterie class, which was not only fun but yummy too!
We also collaborated with Pampered Chef and hosted a Taste of Greece Tasting! Photos of these events are up so be sure to check
them out on Instagram and Facebook!
Continuing on our recaps - let us go back to last year where we successfully hosted another year of our Spring culinary workshops, launched our Global Passports Exploration Series, the kid's loved them and have requested more Global trips! We had numerous sold out themed classes and our Family Event @ 2K Ranch was a huge success! The students made treats for the horses, met the rest of the resident ranch animals, families took a tour of the beautiful ranch grounds and the kids were able to take guided horse rides. We dedicated time also to do a few a private events, competed in a bake-off to support Breast Cancer Awareness month, catered a small gathering and so much more!
We want parents to know that we are continually being proactive in maintaining a limited amount of students and ensuring parents that we continue to abide by all Post COVID safety protocols set in place

"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.)
