Get to know me better

Dinner Parties, Catering & Weekly Meal Prep

I was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro. Being a creative and passionate about food and traveling, I got my certificate in Business Management in Australia before graduating in Fashion Design in Brazil.

Since I moved to the US I shifted my career to the food industry and worked in renowned plant- based restaurants and french fine- dinning concepts. I was luck to learn from award winners and Michelin star chefs in Houston and currently I provide my clients with tailored menus and memorable dinner parties.

My menus reflect a lot of my lifestyle and professional experience and carry a selection of premium ingredients and the most loved dishes I cooked in the past years as a private chef. My cuisine is mostly wellness driven and veggie forward and my menus are inspired in places I visited, art exhibitions as well as the daily life at the vibrant city of Houston.

I used Chef Mariana as a surprise birthday dinner for my dad. Everything was impeccably prepared and tasted delicious. This was a 5 star experience and on par with any top tier restaurant. Would definitely recommend her!

Mariana was an amazing chef! Her food was amazing, and it was perfect for the surprise anniversary dinner I planned. She adeptly created a menu to satisfy my vegetarian/omnivore requests. I felt I had so many options, and I would totally book her again!
