Born to Italian immigrant parents in Venezuela, Maria
Capdevielle was surrounded by the culinary world of her
Central-Italian heritage, rooted in Abruzzo. As a child, she
helped her mother, a caterer, make homemade pastas,
sauces and rustic breads.
She followed her culinary passion to the California Culinary
Academy, becoming a professional Pastry Chef. She gained
experience at The Rose Pistola in North Beach, The
Waterfront in Embarcadero, Market Hall in Oakland, Chez
Panisse in Berkeley, and The Townhouse Grill & Restaurant in
Emeryville. Since 2005, she’s been teaching Italian cooking
and baking. She’s the author of two cookbooks: a 2008 book
about the pastries of Abruzzo (out of print) and most
recently, The Secrets of Baking with Olive Oil. Maria teaches
culinary classes regularly at the Community Center.
