I’m Alexandrina, or Mama Maradin, as the people who knew me in the light of cooking like to call me.
I grew up in the countryside, in a small village and a large and beautiful family with 8 children. In spent my childhood in our family's kitchen looking at my mam or helping her. I left our house, when I was 14th.
When I returned home on vacation, during my studies, the contribution I could easily and gladly bring to the family was my cooking.
I am, myself, a mother, and cooking has always been an important part of my life, being in love with the wonderful and harmonious atmosphere that a family meal creates.
I quit my job as a manager, though I studied to become an engineer, to share it full time by hosting workshops.
