Maria Ramos thinks of the kitchen as the heart of a home. Her passion for cooking began with a child’s curiosity about the many dishes she experience in her family’s kitchen. Maria strives for a variety of flavors and aromas in her cooking and she attempts to translate the deliciousness of spices and roasted flavors into Mexican, Chinese, and American food traditions. She is honored by the smiles of gratitude from the youth and families. Maria is inspired and always eager to learn new cooking techniques to satisfy a broad range of palates and dietary needs.
