About the Author

Alicia Maher is passionate about cooking and is completely in her element in the kitchen. From a very young age, Alicia loved to cook and bake in her native El Salvador. She shopped the local markets for fresh ingredients like meats, vegetables, and spices, and learned the Salvadoran cooking traditions from her paternal grandmother and her numerous aunts. She is passionate about Salvadoran food and has always enjoyed preparing and sharing her home cooking with family and friends. After leaving El Salvador at the age of nineteen, Alicia moved to Washington, D.C. with her first husband, an American diplomat, where they lived for two years before moving to Kfar Shmaryahu, Israel. Wherever she was, Alicia immersed herself in the culture, language, and local food traditions. While fulfilling the official duties of a spouse in the busy diplomatic corps, Alicia lent her grace, charm, food styling, and sense of decor to the numerous State Department events she hosted in her homes for international dignitaries, ambassadors, artists, and celebrities.
