My name is Maria and I am the owner of The Wooden Spoon.
I am a low protein cooking expert, nutritionist, writer and a registered professional home economist.
I am an active member of OHEA (Ontario Home Economist Association).
I hold a BaSc degree in Food Science and Nutrition.
I have worked on recipe testing and recipe development for a variety of Canadian and international food companies, organized culinary and tasting workshops for community members and authored several books on food history and low protein cooking.
In this blog you will find a collection of things that are related to my work, my diet (yes, I do have PKU myself) as well as any other odd pieces of information that I may deem well fitting for this content.
