Maria Goretti


Maria Goretti dons many hats – TV anchor, model, dancer, chef and an award-winning author. She kickstarted her career as a VJ and toured with musicians around the world, while audiences came to love her as a warm and friendly face on TV. In 2011, she pursued her passion for baking and cleared a Cordon Bleu certificate course in food and baking at the Tante Marie School of Cookery, UK, run by Gordon Ramsay, with top honours. Soon after, she dabbled with writing and published a cookbook ‘From My Kitchen To Yours’ that was recognised as the best television chef book in English by a popular chef at the Gourmand World Cookbook in 2017. With television being one of her foremost passions, she has hosted several food shows that explore the intricacies of cooking. On Living Foodz, Maria’s show ‘I Love Cooking’ garnered high praise, and more recently ‘I Want To Bake Free’ is dedicated to those who love breads, cakes, cookies, savouries and everything else in the universe of baking.
