About Me

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

I'd rather eat: Non processed, ethically sourced food
We 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. 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. 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 .....

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
