Chef Maria Kirk is a member of American Personal  & Private Chef Association

Hi! I am Chef Maria Kirk. I am a member in good standing with the American Personal Chef Association. I subscribe to the Personal Chef International Code of Ethics. I am fully licensed and insured by the Florida Restaurant Association (SafeStaff) as a certified Professional Food Manager.

I am always looking for opportunities to expand my culinary skills.

I have taken a cooking and catering program with the Stratford Career Institute. I worked in the restaurant and food industry for 20 years in New York. I received my training as a personal chef with the American Personal Chef Association based in San Diego, California. I have been cooking for 30 years having first started at my mother’s side as a young teenager.

I have always had a passion for cooking and for food. I love to take a recipe and tweak it to make it better or just kick it up a notch. (The Food Network is my favorite channel on TV)
