As a former international supermodel, Maria Liberati never dreamed that she would go from being a fashion diva to a domestic diva. Ironically, while jet setting off to modeling assignments around the world, Maria became closer to the simplicity of life and food in the country setting of her family's vineyard in the mountains of central Italy. Her passion with food began at the early age of 4, when she would accompany 'nonno' (grandfather) on his early morning Saturday trips to the Italian Market in Philadelphia to pick out all the fresh ingredients for the Sunday family meal. Eventually, Maria began writing food articles and restaurant review columns. She was soon asked to conduct cooking programs while in Italy and then in the States. The rest, as they say, is history. Currently, she divides her time between her office and residence in the USA and Italy. Maria's cooking philosophy is to create recipes that simply transform the freshest ingredients without changing their essential flavors.
Maria shared "old world" menu ideas and a simple recipe that is sure to impress. Listen to the interview on The Recipe Box.
