   grew up with a big family by the     Potomac with a gentle dad & a storyteller mother.
 
They would walk down to the forest & riverbank and return with fairylike treasures:

  

 

 

       

    old glass &
wasp nests &
   hawk   feathers    sycamore bark   bittersweet vine
 
the
  gathered garden cuts & cozy ceramics &
 dripping candles &
all the wine &
  the best people around a beautiful table that they       never want to leave
Maria spent a    charmed decade in a beloved midwest &
fell in love with the work of a 
chef-muse-soul-sister, who set the table with blueberry branches &
buck antlers before feeding her people 
     
     the best food
     in the world.
