Maria has a beautiful and loving soul. As soon as I walked in the door she was bursting with energy, excitement, and an eager want to know who I was. I was happy to share my stories with her while she cooked me the best meals. She is an amazing cook and it a weird way you can taste the passion in her cooking as well. She hosted me for two night and we laughed the nights away and sometime I kept her up longer because we lost track of time. We showed me around a little bit and she taught me the fine breads Rome has to offer. If you are able to be hosted by Maria we'll let me tell you that it will be an amazing time, in which you'll feel like you were part of her family. I thank you Maria for showing me such an amazing time. I hope our paths cross again. Good luck finding your favorite and new teas.
