As a former international supermodel, Maria Liberati never dreamed that she would go from being a fashion diva to a domestic diva. Ironically, while jet setting off to modeling assignments around the world, Maria became closer to the simplicity of life and food in the country setting of her family’s vineyard in the mountains of central Italy. She began to experience the real tastes of food that she knew from her childhood.
An Award Winning cookbook author and Celebrity Chef -her passion with food began at the early age of 4, when she would accompany ‘nonno’ (grandfather) on his early morning Saturday trips to the Italian Market in Philadelphia to pick out all the fresh ingredients for the Sunday family meal.Today, Maria is considered one of the foremost experts on Italian Cuisine and culture, has been called the Italian ’Martha Stewart’.
Maria’s philosophy is to create recipes that simply transform the freshest ingredients without changing their essential flavors…”that is an art and cooking is an art..a basic art”. For more tips on cooking, foods, style and decorating, visit Maria’s blog where food meets art, travel and life!
