  Inspiring you to cook your best meal.

Welcome to my kitchen! I'm Chef Maribel. I help home cooks gain small victories in the kitchen, one meal at a time. Focusing on fresh foods, pantry staples, and easy techniques, I will teach you how to confidently cook the food you've been dreaming about. Let's get started!

​Cooking Classes

I can help you level up your cooking repertoire via live virtual classes. We cook together and you get realtime feedback. If you are ready to learn the basics of the kitchen from a chef, then the Essentials Package is the route for you. This package is the foundation from which you can become a confident, organized, and enthusiastic cook. If you would like to create a customized class featuring a diverse menu that caters to your personal taste, then let's explore the Personal Cooking Program together.

​Chef Maribel Rivero

The constant topic of food always goes back to home cooking and that's where you and I will start our cooking conversation.
Cooking to me is about sharing life experiences and traditions with food. I'm motivated by the stories behind cooking and expressing that story into the flavor of the food. In 2017, my brother and I created Yuyo Peruano restaurant as a celebration of my culinary immersion throughout South America, where I connected with the people and the culinary community from Bolivia, Peru, Argentina, and Uruguay. I was recognized by the James Beard Foundation with a Best Chef nomination in 2019.
