Maya has always harbored a natural affinity towards food and music. With brief stints as both a private chef and a DJ, along with a musical theater background, Maya knew there had to be a more “dramatic” way to share her food and recipes with others. With music as her guide, she began cooking dishes inspired by the songs she loved. Eventually, her music and recipes turned into culinary parodies (think Weird Al Yankovic meets Martha Stewart). Maya believes that just as every song has its own beat, so too does every dish have its own unique rhythm. Her favorite “secret ingredient”, MUSIC is at the heart of each and every one of her dishes, and it is her sincere hope that everyone may learn to cook to the beat of their own drum.
