Amazing Cookie Decorating – hands on class! Creative by nature, Marité Acosta’s career has led her to navigate through several artistic worlds. Many years in fashion and textile design have taken her around theworld and back. Growing up in a Cuban household with her mother’s cooking gave her a passion for food and years of traveling opened her eyes and palette and influenced her career in the food industry. Now, classically trained in both culinary and pastry arts, she puts it all together in her food styling and recipe developing. And taking it one step further, her pottery making now allows her to put not only the food on the table, but sometimes the plates, too.
