Bio
I started hosting supper club style in 2012 every now and then as a way to fundraise for local charities and then again in 2014 for my brother in law Neil who was doing an Ironman event to raise money for the ward that his mum Lexie passed away on and from there Dinner at Marias was born. I love sharing food and meeting new people and recently won a Blackburn With Darwen good neighbour award for bringing my community together over dinner. If you want to come to dinner but can't find an event that matches your available dates or dietary requirements get in touch and I will see what I can do. I am also on the lookout for exciting/unusual places to pop up in so if you have any ideas or know of anywhere that might be available then give me a shout - I look forward to meeting you and cooking for you, Maria. PS If you are interested in hosting and want to find out more, learn how I started up then get in touch, I am always happy to share tips, knowledge and tell you about the mistakes I made so you don't have to make them!

5 Course Indian Feast

Maria was a pleasure to have over. Being a host herself it was a treat for her to be on the other side of the table and enjoy being cooler for. She was so bubbly and engaging with all the guests and we look forward to seeing her again.
