Maria is from the Abruzzo Region of Italy in and grew up in a traditional, fun loving family. Many hours were spent in the kitchen, and there were celebrations for every occasion. After an established career in international business, Maria realized it was time to leave a job she liked and return to the life she loves.
Maria is crazy about travel, time with family, making homemade pasta, playing hostess, planning parties and eating cake! When not in the bakery you can find her with her husband and two children.
