"I was born in Crete, Greece. I learned how to cook at the age of 10. I moved with my husband and daughter to Fort Knox in 1997 and cooking became my work from home. I opened my first restaurant in 2000 in Radcliff, Kentucky. I cooked for the soldiers, my family, and all nearby counties. People would come to eat my food from far away, and my reputation was spread throughout Kentucky. I love cooking and believe in healthy food. I have taught hundreds of cooking classes educating others on how to take care of themselves, others, and their families by cooking fresh and healthy food that everyone can enjoy."
Chef Maria is one of Louisville Kentucky’s culinary treasures. She is an avid supporter of local farmers serving local produce when-ever she can in her deli. She believes that everyone in our community should have healthy food, and loves to teach classes on how to cook it. You only have to spend a few minutes with her to realize that food is her passion. She welcomes everyone with her larger than life, arms wide open personality. Awarded with being one of the 100 Fascinating Louisville Women, she is very active and visible in our community. She has appeared on public access shows such as Secrets of Louisville Chefs, and Good Morning WAVE Country. With 16 years of business and an authentic cultural background, we are proud to be known for the best gyros, best Greek salad, and best food in town.
