Chef María Darnell
Seattle Personal Chef
Chef María's Bio
Chef María was born in California, raised in Mexico, and moved into the Seattle area 9 years ago. The kitchen was her playground. At ten years old she started to cook. Her mother let her prepare the family meals often. Her grandma's kitchen was always crowded with cousins and aunties, that taught her the secrets of Mexican cuisine.
Cooking has always been her passion even though her prior work experience in Mexico involved public relations and a promoter of cultural events. She never stopped cooking because she loved bringing new flavors to her kitchen.
Her dream of becoming a chef came true when she arrived in Seattle and started working in a real kitchen setting. In 2016 she graduated from the Culinary Arts at Edmonds Community College. Since moving to Seattle, she has had the opportunity to learn from some of the greatest chefs in the area. She is passionate about learning new techniques, flavors.
Maria loves to cook at home, read and write chronicles, and she has a passion for singing.
