Chef Dila Maloney
2022 Dila's Kitchen

My name is Stephanie Dila Maloney, You can call me Dila of Dila’s Kitchen in Portland Maine. I am the daughter of a US ARMY Veteran, and Turkish National I grew up traveling the world with my sisters and parents because of my dad’s job In the Military. I am also a mother of three children, two girls 14 and 9 and one boy almost 2. I have been operating my own place for 6 months now but have been in the restaurant industry for over 15 years.  It has been quite the adventure owning my own place. I am super excited to be a part of GASCO. This is my first experience in a cook off, I cannot wait to show my kids how dreams can come true and that when you set your mind to it, anything can be achieved.
