Originally from a theatre background, Maria went back to her roots in Mallorca to set up the restaurant Ca na Toneta.
“I try and explain my landscape, who we are, where we come from and where we are headed through taste. As a chef I feel I am interpreting the region I live in”.
Self-taught, and nourished from her mother’s cooking, Maria has come up with her own food philosophy and is a self-confessed “fierce advocate for local, organic, and seasonal produce”. For her it is essential to work with your environment, to connect with local farmers and producers in Mallorca and to use local varieties.
Maria wears the Beeswax Coat and Headscarf and above the Kassar striped coat and pants.
