Alan and I started hosting supper club style in 2014 to raise money for my brother in law who was doing an Iron Man event to raise money for the ward that his mum Lexie passed away on and from their Dinner at Marias was born. We love sharing food and meeting new people and recently won a Blackburn With Darwen good neighbour award for bringing our community together over dinner. We are keen to do lots of pop up's this year so if you know of anyone or anywhere then do get in touch ...

March | Cook the Book!

We loved having Maria at our event! She made some pretty great dishes to complete our repertoire - A Mocha and Black Bean Mousse Cake and Roasted Cauliflower salad with dates and lentils. A pleasure to host and look forward to having her for our next event.

Thank you to the lovely Maria for letting us use her house for our Cook the Book event! Her hospitality and food to share helped make the night a success! It was great to have you in the group and to hear more about your food stories. Can't wait to see what you cook next. x

The Road to Mexico Via Acrington

Maria was incredible from start to finish. She was great to deal with over email and quickly put together an excellent menu for our Mexican meal. On the day she arrived and began working away, lighting the BBQ and preparing sides and not too long after we were ready to eat. The food was incredible and really nicely put together. Everyone, especially the bride, was delighted with the whole service. Thank you Maria, and thanks for helping us get a group pic of the whole hen party!
