Goretti started off as a model — we saw her in a few advertisements. Soon she was selected as a VJ through a talent hunt competition. Today, she is a chef and running a show on her YouTube channel. She has penned a cookery book and she also curates menus for restaurants. Maria discovered her love for cooking while preparing food for her kids. “I take recipes from my aunts, mother or anyone who I feel has made something delicious. At night, when I’m alone in my kitchen – me and my little world - I just love to cook,” she adds. “I keep making the dish till the time I have made it so many times that it’s drilled in my mind and I can cook it blindly,” says the mother of two. Her current obsession is to get sourdough bread right.
