About Me

I'm in my 50s
Dietary requirements
I am: Always hungry
I'm allergic to: Nothing

I'd rather eat: Ethically sourced food, non processed
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 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 our 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 we will see what we 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 what to find out more, learn how we started up then get in touch .....

Fabulous as ever! We will be back! Thank you so much Maria. The food was delicious and we had the most lovely time. Seth’s face when he realised there was a third pudding was the funniest thing ever! 😂
