Chef Maria Parish

Get to know me better

Professionally trained well seasoned private chef, that loves cooking for dinner parties.

My career as a professional chef began in 1997, as I graduated from the Los Angeles Culinary Institute and trained with AMC Raymond Hofmeister. But, training really started at a very young age, because I was taught how to cook from my Greek Yia-Yia and learned how to entertain from my mother. This is why being a private chef feels natural and instinctive. My talents have led me to chef positions throughout California; Santa Barbara, Pismo Beach, Napa/Sonoma, San Jose, constantly adding to my culinary repertoire.

As a private chef, I pride myself with understanding clients needs and dietary preferences. I can accommodate any speciality diet or restrictions without compromising flavors, and well versed in the purchasing and cooking of organic and non-GMO foods and products.
