Meet Maria in Padstow @ #UCFF17

So chef, how much do you really know about your dry store? What makes oregano ‘good’? What are the top tasting notes of black pepper, and why should you care? Do you know how to tell true cinnamon from Cassia?

If you don't know, you should. But don't worry - Maria's here to help.

Stop by my spice truck at this year’s Universal Cookery & Food Festival. It's kitted out with everything you need to get up close and personal with the spices & herbs you use every day, allowing you to get hands on in a way that, trust me, you won't have done before. It's eye opening to say the least, but I'll let you be the judge.

I'm running sessions on the hour between 10am and 3pm. Because I'm a giver, every chef that books and attends a session will receive £200 worth of my spices to makeover your dry store.

And if that's not enough, I'll have Torbaydos’ own Simon Hulstone serving food up from the truck all day - man knows his way around a pepper grinder.

Whilst there’s plenty of Maria to go around, I’m not one to spread myself too thin - spaces are limited book now via Twitter or Instagram.

From all accounts it's going to be poppin' off in Padstow this year, I can't wait to meet you.
