Since she was a little girl, Chef Maritza Paz longed to cook with her mother in the kitchen; now, the native of Peru is helping to bring that love of cooking to others.
Paz grew up in the city of Iquitos, along the shores of the Amazon River. Her mother, a chef, was part of a segment on a daily cooking show that was filmed at her home. She also had her own business catering for the army, navy, air force, government organizations and other events.
While her mother taught her how to cook starting at age 12, Paz added the artistic flair on her own. She believes that the dishes are small works of art which show a little of her personality.
She specializes in Peruvian cuisine, which combines Incan, African, Japanese, French, German, Spanish and Italian influences. She takes advantage of it all.
