Let me introduce myself. My name is Maria and I am passionate about anything pertaining to food and wine. Mostly old world wines, especially the wines of Italia. I have been in the restaurant business all of my adult life. I have traveled all over the world but have found that Italy has really captured my heart. As a young girl I grew up with great traditions coming from an Italian family. Both of my grandparents on my mom’s side were from Calabria, a region which I have traveled to many times, getting to know the food and the culture. I have been so fortunate to be able to run a busy Italian restaurant, sharing my passion with many people every day. I love to eat and to pair delicious wines with the food I am enjoying. It has become a hobby to find the best new food trends and find the best places to eat and to shop around the city.
This blog is promised to be about all things having to do with dining, eating and of course enjoying a great bottle of Vino.
The name for eat in Italian is Mangia so my blog is Mangia Maria.
