Founder and director Maria de la Torre

Maria de la Torre

Chef and trainer

Pursuing an adventure that started at a very young age in her grandmother’s kitchen, Maria traveled the world discovering local flavours and cookery traditions, securing a Cordon Bleu Diploma from the Tante Marie Cookery School in The UK, catering internationally for special events, and setting up Sugar and Saffron in the South of France where she currently lives.

“Cooking is magical. The chef is the alchemist that with passion, experience and skill transforms ingredients into the gold that is then shared with guests.”
