Marina is a globetrotter, a cook and extremely passionate about everything she does. Maybe not exactly in that order, but without doubt she is a woman who loves traveling to distant places and discovering new flavours. Someone passionate about cuisine and the countries she visits. A chef who cooks and travels with passion!
Her trademarks are her infectious smile and a baseball cap instead of the traditional Chef´s hat. Her slight Argentinean accent together with her flair for cooking and her unique sense of humor are characteristics that single her out in international cuisine where she is widely recognized.
Marina was born in Buenos Aires, a child of many cultures, her family being of Russian, Italian and Argentinean descent. Before becoming a Chef, she studied Art at the University of Buenos Aires and in ACAD (Canada), while simultaneously working in the food industry. She is an author of 2 cookbooks including “Cook Like a Latin Lover” and a petite coffee table guide book to prepping an Asado called “Fire" which was released in 2021.Marina currently concentrates in the "restaurant concept" consultation part of the business.
The vision for The Spice Chica is to encourage people to think more about where their food comes from, to teach them how to cook simply and thoughtfully with love and less waste, to help them realize the importance of being present while eating and sharing food with others, and to inspire them to consider how food strengthens the body and mind. Through this vision we believe we can build stronger children, tighter families, and better communities.

Through hands-on cooking classes, personal dinning, sauce creations and other food experiences, The Spice Chica encourages people to think more about the source of their food.
We emphasize cooking simply and thoughtfully with love and less waste, eating and sharing food with others, and working with food to strengthen our bodies and minds.
