Chef Mary Payne Moran is a Los Angeles chef that teaches cooking classes for kids and adults. She is featured in The Washington Times Communities; “That Morning Show” You Tube, Cooking with Chef Mary, Twitter, & Facebook. She has taught children and adults cooking techniques and healthy eating in homes, private as well as public schools cooking schools and more in the Midwest and in Los Angeles.

As a professional chef Mary helps people through her cooking and, as a nutritionist she guides them through her words. The truth is it’s easier for someone to maintain a healthy lifestyle when she’s in control of the cooking, but it is more important in the long run to teach someone how to cook for themselves.

Our Mission Statement

Hail Mary's

Dedicated in offering the best service to families founded on the belief that food nurtures the soul. Improving the lives of others in the world of health and food.

Family Meals
Family meals are a comforting ritual for both parents and kids. Children like the predictability of family meals and parents get a chance to catch up with their kids. With more and more double-income families and children involved in numerous after-school and sports activities, the family dinner hour has disappeared. Hail Mary’s is a way to reconnect the family around the dinner table. Less time will be spent fusing over making dinner and more time engaging with your children, your spouse, and your friends.

Hail Mary’s
Has the highest standard in delivering quality meals, keeping up with the families busy schedules and making good nutrition a priority.
