I had the privilege of meeting Chef Maria Walusis recently on Update Dayton, our public affairs program that airs Sunday morning at 6:30.
She has a very interesting story about how she became a Chef and it also shows just how much passion she has for cooking.
For 26 years Chef Maria worked as a dental hygienist, cleaning teeth for a living. But eventually her true love began to call, cooking for people in her own restaurant.
Juggling family, full-time employment and working at night with some of the areas best Chef's for free, Maria eventually gained enough experience and confidence to start her own restaurant Nibbles at 105 S. Second Street in Miamisburg.
Check out food critic Paula Johnson's full review of Nibbles in this weeks edition of The Dayton City Paper on your newsstands right now.
